Party in the Park is a community outreach event to kick off the school year for the kids in the Mills River Community. Mills River UMC hosts the annual event at the Mill River Park. The event is a fun afternoon full of music, games, and free school supplies for over 500 area students. This is a chance for the church to give back to the community that makes us all so strong.
This year we received a brief shower (ok, a huge thunderstorm), but the event was a big success that the rain could not wash away. The kids had fun in the rain before the lightning sent them to safer places. As we were cleaning up, a rainbow appeared on the horizon, reminding us of God’s Promise to love us forever.
Please help support this our Children’s Ministry by attending our other events at Mills River United Methodist Church! We now have an after-school program called “RiverKids” that provides a safe place for kids to get extra help with their schoolwork with snacks and other programs. Mills River UMC is truly a community church. I am proud to be a part of it!
