Church schedules 'Colossal Coaster World'

A weeklong event to focus on children is set for 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 5 through 9 at First Baptist Church, 201 Beach Drive in Destin.

“We’ve planned an exciting week for a fun learning event to finish out summer," said Laurie Roper, director of children's ministries. "It will be filled with high energy music to blow your hair back, crafts, recreation and snacks, and children from throughout our area can attend without any cost.”

From cotton candy to amusement park setting, including a roller coaster, theme for the week will be “Colossal Coaster World."

“We invite children to come enter the main gate, wait in line and step into the adventure of a lifetime,” said Roper. 

Fear can seem colossal in the eyes of a child, but First Baptist week for children will teach those who attend how to overcome fear with God’s help, and will provide excitement around every corner for ages four to fifth grade.
