Youngsville Life

PowerHouse Kids

On the second Saturday of each month (during the school year), the Youngsville Free Methodist Church (179 Davis Street) sponsors a free PowerHouse Kids Program for kids ages 4 years old through 6th grade. It provides an opportunity for kids to come to have fun, play games, sings songs, and do crafts all while learning lessons from the Bible. A free lunch is also provided to the kids.

This Saturday, Dec. 8, PowerHouse kids will be celebrating with a Christmas Party from 9 a.m. to noon.

Parents, if you have some Christmas shopping to do, need to get a little baking done, or just simply need a moment or two to relax, you can drop your kids off at the church for a morning of fun, music, cookie decorating, and more and lunch will be provided.

Since it is a Christmas Party, kids are encouraged to dress in their Christmas pajamas, too!
