Red Baron Playground

Red Baron

Twenty five years ago we constructed this building and soon after we built a playground for our children to enjoy. The wooden structure has served us and the children in Riversong, our daycare ministry, very well over all the years, but it is now slowly breaking down and becoming unsafe.

We have decided to do a major renovation of the playground this spring. We plan to erect an exciting new play structure called the Red Baron with dual sling shot slides that mimic awesome air combat! The Red Baron will have our kids feeling like national heroes as they fly through play events, learning socialization skills as they play. They will build upper and lower body strength on the overhead and climbing activities, and enjoy the musical whimsy of the whistle and rain wheel.

Red Baron is the first phase of a multiphase upgrade to our children’s ministry learning area. We also plan to construct a new swing set & tire swing structure, small stage, and a playhouse.

We need your financial assistance to make all this a reality! Thanks to many of Our Father’s House families, Riversong parents and contributions in memory of Brianna Jones, we have raised $14,500. We have a goal of $28,000 to finish the major elements of the overall project. You can support our fundraiser through our eGiving page.

We are planning to erect the Red Baron structure on Saturday April 6 from 8 AM - 4 PM.  A company representative will be onsite to oversee our effort. We need many skilled and unskilled laborers to erect the new playground structure. Ladies are needed to provide lunch for all the hungry workers. Please contact the office directly either by voicemail or email with your availability to contribute manpower, food, or finances.

We will have a church picnic and playground dedication after church on Sunday May 19. Please make plans to join us for this very special day.

Thank you again for your continued generosity. I look forward to the pictures of small smiling faces on dedication day. 

See you on the playground.
