Provide a backpack and supplies to aid homeless and foster children through our partnerships with A Child's Place and Children's Hope Alliance! The number of children identified as homeless is continuing to grow and they need our help to be prepared for a new school year.
All you have to do:
1. Buy a full-size backpack
2. Fill it with all items on the shopping list (links below)
3. Bring it to Meck any weekend from July 30-August 14
Your donations will help the children not only to be prepared, but to be confident at the start of school!
The entire family is invited to an outdoor movie night at our Mountain Island Lake Campus! Bring your blankets or a lawn chair, and spread out on Mountain Island Charter's football field with us. We'll have games, free popcorn, and a movie starting at sunset.
TeamLife is designed to be a first step for you to get connected at Meck. This two-hour class will discuss how Meck got started, our beliefs and mission and how you can get involved here. TeamLife also serves as our membership class where you will learn about our membership process.
Childcare is provided for this event. Please register your children by including their information in the registration form when prompted.
Meck's next Family Night is not just any Family Night... it's Wild and Wacky Family Night!
Come ready to make family memories with water soaking, paint splashing and slippery sliding fun.
The night itself will kick-off at 6 p.m. with a hot dog dinner, accompanied with wacky contests including the annual burping contest. Yes, you read (heard) that right.
(NOTE: You must register for the hot dog dinner)
Service starts at 7 p.m. with wacky games and a fun lesson for the family.
Family challenges start at 7:45, including an obstacle course, slip 'n slides, and a color splash. There will be frozen treats for everyone, sprinkler areas to rinse off after the wacky games and plastic bags to protect your car from the mess.
The night is going to be fun, it's going to be messy and it's going to be your family's favorite summer event. Come get wild and wacky with us on August 12!
GroupLink is a two-hour event that will allow you to meet people in a similar life stage with the goal of forming a Group. A host, several staff members and Groups volunteers will be at GroupLink to help you meet your group and walk you through the night.
