Pastors Amy Wagner and Nathan Saccol made their Church Group ‘FAITH ACTS’ become Faith In Action when they celebrated the Mooncrest After School Children with an outdoor picnic on Friday, May 23.
The event marked the final day for the meeting of the after school children before the closing of the last day of school with The Moon School District.
Pastor Nathan, a staff member at the Program, brainstormed the idea of an outdoor picnic for this final celebration. With his church group as well as the Knights of Columbus and the Mooncrest After School staff, he and Andrea Livingston, Faith Acts member, coordinated this wonderful event.
While the Faith Acts Group prepared for grilling hamburgers and hot dogs as well as presenting the food attractively, Mooncrest Zumba Instructor, Rachel Calhoun led the children with Zumba activities on the basketball courtyard.
SM Rene Procopio, program director, remarked on the great picnic weather as children and neighbors gathered in the park. Pastor Nathan directed the children for the Addams Family Grace, and then led everyone in praise of God for the beautiful gathering and wonderful church group, Faith Acts.
Mooncrest music instructor Mr. Mark Lang strummed his guitar and invited the children to beat some drums and enjoy a sing-a-long while everyone selected their food. Menu selections included grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, salads of all kinds, fruit, candy, and other goodies; beverages including lemonade, iced tea and water.
Sister Rene said, “What a beautiful sight, to see everyone celebrating the Mooncrest children!”
