'Summer in the city'


A group of seven churches put on a little summer fun for children at Canby's Wait Park

by: RACHEL ALDRICH - The bouncy house provided a lot of smiles and laughter as part of the church-sponsored carnival at  Wait Park. Seven Alliance churches affiliated with Canby Alliance Church held a free carnival for kids of all ages at Wait Park Thursday.

The project was mostly put on by the church junior high kids, who were “learning to how to serve God by serving others,” Jon Coats, one of the event facilitators said.

It was just part of a week of serving on the part of the church. Other days involved helping clean up parks and trails, mobile home parks, and working at the food bank.

Jon Coats said there is no secret agenda: “We just want to share the love of Christ with these kids.”
