St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Tucker, home of a quality church pre-school and after-school program in the community, will hold its sixth annual “Back to School Carnival” on Saturday, August 12, 2017, 10 am to 1 pm, on the church property at 4882 Lavista Road .
All are welcome and the carnival is free. Activities will include face painting, bounce houses, spin art, a petting zoo, Bible stories and church songs, plus hotdogs, chips, snow cones and other snacks.
“It’s really a lot of fun for families with young children,” said Jill Jarvis, one of the event planners. “It’s an opportunity to experience our hospitality, see our campus and ask questions about our programs.”
St. Andrews Church was started in the early 1960's and first opened the school in 1969. Today, it serves more than 100 pre-school children ranging in age from six months to five years old, and provides an after-school program for students in grades one through five. It also offers a day camp during summer months.
Last year’s carnival drew a crowd of more than 250 parents and children. Volunteers served 300 hot dogs and are ready to have fun with lots of kids this year. Rev. Camille Powell and all the members welcome the community to enjoy this fun, free family event.
If you have young children and are looking for a pre-school or an after-school program that teaches values as well as core skills, or are looking for a new church home, we would love to see you on Saturday August 12 at the St. Andrews 2017 “Back to School Carnival.”
