We hold a 5th Quarter Party after the home high school football games each season. Our church is 2 blocks from the stadium. We provide music (mix of Christian & secular), either a D.J. or band, plus pizza & pop.
Kids dance or hang out in the Youth Room and play pool, ping pong and foosball. We take digital photos at the game & put in a video presentation that includes info about our Youth Group. We play the video throughout the evening. About midway through the party, we have a short Gospel presentation. The parties have been so well attended that we have also added a few after home basketball games during the winter months. Diane Stewart, Youth Director, First Christian Church, Oskaloosa, Iowa
