CROSSING COMMUNITY EVENTS
It was a busy week beginning Monday when Pastor George took a few
kids fishing that have never fished before. They headed out to
Schnable Lake and actually caught 34 fish! It was a fun experience!
They cooked out and ended the day enjoying ice cream!
On Tuesday they headed to 5/3rd park to the White Caps family fun day.
Five lucky kids were able to enjoy this day with Pastor George. They
had dinner with the White Caps Players, took batting practice,
learned to throw a curve ball and change up, ran the bases, got lots of
autographs…even met Crash!
