Spring Fling, a community festival at Christ United Methodist Church on Saturday, will incorporate both merriment and missions.
The event, scheduled from 3 to 6 p.m., will feature free food, music, magicians and street theater by J-Crew, as well as activities for children such as inflatables, a climbing wall and miniature golf. Music from each of Christ Church's four distinctly different weekly services will be featured thoughout the event.
Two special events, also open to anyone, are a dodgeball tournament and an Open Door Singles square dance.
A highlight of the day will be the Stop Hunger Now meal packaging program. Volunteers, working just a few minutes each, will package 10,000 highly nutritious meals that are used in crisis situations.
Christ United Methodist is at 8645 East Brainerd Road across from Publix. For more information, call 892-9363.
