Last fling of summer

Philip and Angela Foster opened their home to some of the children in Providence UMC Children’s Ministries for a day of outside fun before the start of school. The kids enjoyed playing in the creek, climbing rocks, feeding chickens, swinging on rope and tire swings, eating figs straight out of the tree, and sharing a picnic lunch together.
