“School’s out for the summer!” (Or at least many are starting to wind down at this point.) As we all look forward to longer days, warmer weather, and having more time to spend with family and friends, I am also looking forward to some of our upcoming Youth events.

This summer, I have planned some low-key events for the kids. We will be going to several “Gloucester County Movie in the Park Nights” as well as playing some mini-golf this summer. Our mini-golf outing will be Monday, July 9th @ 7pm at Gino’s in Mantua.

The movie nights will be at various parks throughout Gloucester County and are free. The movies and locations that we will be attending are:

  • Monday, June 25 – Borough of Wenonah – Moana -Wenonah Park, East Mantua and South West Avenues.
  • Friday, July 20 – Woolwich Township – Lego Ninjago – Woolwich Twp. Municipal Building, 120 Village Green Drive.
  • Friday, August 17 – Red Bank Battlefield – Jumanji – 100 Hessian Avenue, National Park.
  • Monday, August 27 – Borough of Pitman – Despicable Me 3 – Sunset Auditorium, Laurel Avenue, Pitman.

The movie times are mostly at sunset, which according to the county website is around 8- 8:30pm. The website for the other summer movies, in case you or your family might be interested in the others is as follows: http://www.gloucestercountynj.gov/depts/p/parks/family/movpark.asp

I would also like to ask for prayers for our Mission Team, especially the youth, going to Staten Island this summer. May they continue to feel God’s presence and support as they do God’s work.

May God continue to bless you and your loved ones during this summer season.
