St. Augustine’s desired a fenced-in playground area for their youngest members. In the midst of a “baby boom” in their small but growing congregation and the wish to find additional sources of revenue, our grant helped set the stage for them to create a Parent’s Day Out (PDO) program by providing funds for the play structure and fence.
This project allows for a safe and fun place to run and play and is a visible and tangible way of showing new families that the church cares about their children.
Co-Vicar Jordan Hylden says that current members of the church have commented how nice it is to have young children running around after years without them. We think these smiling faces say it all!
