An event originally set for today, the first day of summer holidays for Weyburn students, Life Centre Church's 'School's Out for Summer Party' has been postponed due to the forecasted rainfall, and will now be held on July 13th.

Lead Pastor, Matt Erickson said the fun-filled day complete with a BBQ, bouncy castles, and treats, will be better off complete with all the features, and bouncy castles are no fun in the rain. 

The church’s goal for the event is to give back to the community, “We bought this building on 17th Street. about five years ago and they always wanted to do stuff for the community, and then, of course, 2020 happened and it kind of put a stop to any plans for a few years. So, it's been on the top of the list to put something on. So, we're hoping this will kind of build some momentum and lots of people don't even know where we are. We are in a very residential part of the city. There's lots of houses and even I live only a few blocks away. So, I’m hoping to invite all my neighbors and just have some fun.” 

In addition to a BBQ and bouncy castles, kids can look forward to cotton candy, snow cones, pop, and games—all completely free! The event will start at 11:00 a.m. and continue until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 13th. After sundown, around 9:30 p.m., families can enjoy an outdoor screening of the first two episodes of season four of 'The Chosen.' 

This is the first annual 'School's Out for Summer Party', Pastor Erickson shared that the goal is to make this an annual celebration and while the event is free to attend, they will be accepting non-perishable food items to be donated to the Weyburn Food Bank. Life Centre Church is located at 96, 17th Street.
