Children & Families Juneteenth Gathering
Mon, Jun 14 @ 6 PM Taylor Street Park & Sprayground (416 N. Taylor St., Wake Forest)
Join us under the pavilion at Taylor Street Park and Sprayground! We will read a story or two about Juneteenth, color the Juneteenth freedom flag, and then enjoy some time in the park together. This will be a wonderful chance to catch up with Mother Sarah, Mother Amanda (our new Curate) and Ms. Sandra Rhodes will stop by to see her Godly Play students in person! Feel free to bring a picnic dinner to enjoy at the park before we gather at 6.
