Due to thundershowers at the end of June, Life Centre Church postponed their 'School's Out for Summer Party', which is now happening this Saturday, July 13th from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at 96 Seventeenth Street. 

The fun-filled day will include hot dogs, snow cones, cotton candy, bouncy castles, and more. 

While the church's purchase of the former E. Bourassa & Sons building on 17th Street, already five years ago now, was largely about getting to host community events, Pastor Matt Erickson said the government shutdowns in 2020 put those plans on hold... until now.

"It's been on the top of the list to put something on, so we're hoping this will kind of build some momentum," he shared. "Lots of people don't even know where we are. We are in a very residential part of the city. There are lots of houses and even I live only a few blocks away, so I’m hoping to invite all my neighbours and just have some fun."

"I know one of the big complaints as a parent with young kids is just wanting to more stuff to do,” he noted, adding that their goal is to make this an annual celebration for the community.

In addition to the all-day fun, after sundown, around 9:30 p.m., families can enjoy an outdoor screening of the first two episodes of season four of 'The Chosen.' 

While it is free to attend, Life Centre Church will be accepting donations of cash or non-perishable food items for the Weyburn Salvation Army's School Lunch Program.
