Parents' Time Out

The Church Council is planning an event to benefit parents with young children during the pre-Christmas season. On Saturday, December 11, (10am to 2pm) parents may bring their children to Lakewood for a time of supervised recreation. Parents can then go Christmas shopping, wrap presents or simply enjoy some time to themselves. Children should plan to bring their own lunch. Activities will include puppets, a craft and a movie. All the adults supervising the children have their clearances approved. RSVP to Jackie Garnon at or to the church office at 814-833-4131.
