Church Picnic & Model Rocket Launch

July 24 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Church Picnic & Model Rocket Launch
When: July 24, following the service
Where: Franconia Park, Allentown Rd
Come join the fun! July’s Fellowship Meal will take place at Franconia Park where we’ll enjoy hamburgers and hotdogs together. The church will provide the burgers and dogs as well as bottled water. We will also have some lawn games available. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite a neighbor, friend, or your ‘One Life’.
What to bring: Please bring a side dish to share (salads, chips, fruit and veggies, etc.) and/or a dessert. Also, if you are able, consider bringing lawn chairs.
What else: We’ll be hosting our first ever Model Rocket Launch! You can participate as a spectator or as a launch participant. If you’d like to build and launch a rocket, you can order model rocket kits here or purchase your own. We will have two models to choose from: a beginner kit (tail assembly comes as a single unit; the model doesn’t require any painting) and a level one kit (will need to be assembled and painted/decorated). Although the kit is complete, you will need to provide glue and paint. Also included in the price of the kit is the rocket engine and other launch components. Kids and adults are welcome to join in the fun!
Cost: Price for the Hamburger/Hotdog meal – $3/person. Price for rocket model kits – $5/kit.
* If you order any rocket kits, they will be delivered to you at church about 2 weeks before the event so that you/your children will have time to build them.
* Bring your completed rocket to the picnic on July 24. Engines and launch components will be provided at the picnic.
* We will have launch platforms ready to go for the big event! ( https://registrations-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/image/file/55334/E2X_Rocket_for_beginners.jpg?content-disposition=attachment )
