I am looking forward to our Pool Parties with a Purpose for the kids through 6th grade on Wednesday nights again this summer! To help with costs, we would love for any church member who has a pool in their backyard to volunteer to host 1 pool party this summer. Here are the dates we need pools, from 6pm-7:30pm each night: June 13, June 20, June 27, July 18, July 25, and August 1. The church will provide all food and drinks and also a lifeguard for the event. Please let me know if you are interested in hosting our kids!
