[ARCHIVED] A Family Fun Day in Carthage

CARTHAGE, Mo. — A Carthage church brought families together for some fun in the sun this weekend.

“The Bridge – A Christian Church” held its annual “Rallye in The Park” in the Maple Leaf City’s “Central Park”.

Sunday started at 8 am with around 40 people participating in a 5k run and a kids obstacle run.

Other activities also included an outdoor church service, a car show, free lunch and face painting for the kiddos.

All proceeds from Sunday’s events will benefit Joplin’s “Peterson Outdoors Ministries,” an organization that helps Veterans with post-military service issues they may face.

“What Peterson does is they do annual hunts and they bring in a family — a veteran and his family — free of charge — let them stay at their lodge and we’ll take them out and go do a hunt and record it and we’ll just provide an opportunity for them to talk with people, help them through their problems, things that they’re dealing with — but then to also give their family an opportunity to be spoken to and ministered to as well,” said Cody Dougless, the Connections Minister for The Bridge.
