Close to 160 people, including 143 fourth, fifth and sixth graders and 15 volunteers, spent the evening of Nov. 10 at the C456 Fall Extreme event at WCC. Volunteers, who ranged in age from 15 to 75, assisted with check-in, food service, activity stations and clean-up.

Students played games such as 9-square, gaga ball, laser tag and ping pong and tested their skills on an obstacle course. A highlight of the evening, however, was the in-the-dark pumpkin launch. At the end of the evening, the Gospel message was shared.

“This event is about providing an opportunity for our C456 students to invite their friends to a fun, high-energy event,” said Jada Rhodes, C456 program leader. “Our students did a great job inviting their peers, and for some of the kids who accepted the invitation, this was the first time they had ever heard the Gospel message. 

“I am really proud of the kids in our C456 program,” Jada added. “They not only turned out for this event, they understood the importance of getting their friends there, too. You never know where the spark that leads a child to Christ may come from.”
