Church Picnic

On August 5, 2022 we will have a Church Picnic at Camp Milan. Everyone is invited to this celebration. The Methodist Men will help grill hamburgers, hot dogs, and provide lemonade. Everyone is invited to bring a dish to share. 

Dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m., so please come a little early to make sure your dish is available to share. After dinner, we will have games for kids of all ages, including bean-bag toss, basketball, and other carnival games. There will be a campfire for s’mores too!

Bring a lawn chair if you want to enjoy the “Movie Under the Stars” at 8:30 p.m. We will show a classic family-friendly movie on the big screen hanging from the pavilion a few minutes after sunset (which is 8:15 p.m.).

After the movie we will have a kids and youth lock-in. Kids must be registered before the night of the event to sleep over. They should bring their own bedding and toiletries.
