Church planning 'On the Lawn' event

The youth and youth leaders of Greenbrier First United Methodist Church are putting together their first annual “On The Lawn” event October 11, starting at 12 noon for the entire church and community. GFUMC is known for their community-wide efforts that benefit not just the youth of Greenbrier, but everyone. They always do a big July 4 celebration on the lawn, a spring Easter egg hunt on their lawn and one of the favorites is their annual Trunk-n-Treat in their parking lot. Their food pantry has burgeoned in size and helps many families in the area and their movies on the lawn this summer were a hit. Don’t forget their clothing give-away September 13, 7 a.m. to noon. Donations are still being accepted through this week for that event.

Food and games will begin at noon October 11 with a pulled pork sandwich and potato salad plate lunch for $5.00. Volley ball and badminton games will be going on until the Tournament games start at 2 p.m. There is a $5.00 per team entry fee for the tournament games that will include horseshoes, washer, ladder ball and Baggo. Get your team together or join a team there and have some fun.

There will be a live band and a movie at dusk on the front lawn called “God’s Not Dead”. The nursery will be open for children three and under. This should be a fun-filled day not just for youth but for the entire church and community that the youth hope to make an annual fund-raiser event. If anyone would like to volunteer to help this day, there are many places available. Call the church at 501-679-2452 for more information and come out for a good time on October 11.
