Planners of the second annual Lincolnton Community Youth Rally hope children will play ball.
This yearâ€™s event, â€œCatching the Spirit,â€ will be held Friday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Sept. 26 at Boger City United Methodist Church. But make no mistake, children from all denominations are welcome.
â€œThis is at Boger City United Methodist, but this is a community endeavor,â€ the Rev. Keys Pendleton said.
Pendleton serves on a committee with other volunteers who want to offer a weekend of activity and enlightenment for children.
Events will kick off at 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24. A band will play music while kids register and dig into some pizza.
Weekend activities will continue Saturday and Sunday from 4 until 9 p.m. There will be games, door prizes, food, batting cages and a Moon Walk.
Committee members see the event as a way to celebrate children. Thirty-two churches from 11 denominations are participating.
