CRESTVIEW — Families having a splash tomorrow at Emmanuel Baptist Church will do more than have fun: they'll also support adoption.
Wednesday, Crestview Orphan Care, one of the church's ministries, will sponsor the Kids’ Big Splash Day. Preschool and elementary school-age children can play on water slides, inflatable slides and bounce houses with supervision.
‘It’s a way to beat the heat for a great cause,” said Justin Wyatt, Emmanuel's pastor of worship and missions.
All proceeds benefit the EBC adoption fund, which provides grants for church members looking to adopt a child. Twenty families, either fostering or adopting children, are regular church members.
Orphan Care also organizes small group meetings.
Parents attending Splash Day should bring a picnic lunch. However, snacks and refreshments will also be available with donations.
