‘Messy Church’ to be held at Camas United Methodist Church Oct. 28

All ages are invited to casual event

The Camas United Methodist Church congregation would like to invite the community to enjoy an evening of “Messy Church” programming.

It will include a complimentary, casual dinner Tuesday, Oct. 28, at 5:30 p.m., in the church’s fellowship hall, 706 N.E. 14th Ave., followed by a variety of activities for all ages.

CUMC Pastor Richenda Fairhurst said the first local Messy Church night, Sept. 30, was an in-house practice.

It included a taco dinner and activities such as cardboard barn building, relay races, Legos, painting, gluing, taping, drawing and a word-in-action celebration from Fairhurst.

“It is an international movement, and I believe we are the first church in Washington to do it,” she said regarding Messy Church, which is popular in England and Scotland.
