Attention all kids between Kindergarten and grade 12: Orchard Beach Assembly and the “MVP Children’s Ministry” invites you to come and participate in this year’s Pinewood Derby Race.  

Kids will have the opportunity to arrive early between 6:30-7 p.m., where they can hang-out and play games with their friends.  The concession stand will be open for business, offering fun snacks, candies and other refreshments.  

Between 7 and 7:30 p.m., the children will be taught a Biblical principle, followed up with a key life lesson.  Following the teaching time, the coaches, leaders and teams will work together to design, build, sand, paint and race their cars. 

A heavy emphasis is placed on good sportsmanship and treating others with respect.  Parents are invited to come and watch and participate and even build a car themselves.  The teens and adults can take their car home to work on it if they want to. We have several different categories for trophies that include fastest car, most decorated and most creative. 

This event will run on Wednesdays throughout the month of February with race day on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 10 a.m. The cost is only $8 per participant or $20 per family consisting of 3 or more participants.  You may register for this event by stopping by the church office at 2025 Orchard Beach Rd., North East, PA or calling in at 725-3435.
