First United Methodist to hold North Side event

Embrace, First United Methodist Church’s outreach program, will hold a special event at the North Side Park between Alabama and Broad Streets from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 28.

A brief devotional will be included, along with a variety of games and activities. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be available and if the weather cooperates, live music.

The event is being planned to provide information about and attract people to the church, especially young people. Although the North Side neighborhood is the focus, others are welcome.

The event was originally scheduled for Sunday, June 29, but the date was changed so this would not conflict with the community freedom celebration planned by several area churches at the courthouse Sunday evening.
