LEXINGTON, MA – A giant inflatable obstacle course, exotic animal encounters, and a mechanical bull aren’t the kinds of things you usually think of when you think of church. But on Saturday, March 2, one of the larger churches in the metro Boston area, Grace Chapel , will have all of that and more at their Lexington campus’ 8th Annual WinterBlast indoor carnival.
Grace Chapel’s annual WinterBlast Family Fun Day slogan is, “Come In Out of the Cold,” and every year, over 2000 people do just that. They come to this free event, enjoying the inflatable attractions, video games, crafts, shows, and food. They ride the Robo Surf, challenge the Wrecking Ball, and they see shows like a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Narnia movies, and martial arts demonstrations. And the entire event is free to the public. So why do they do it?
“We love offering WinterBlast because it gives hundreds of kids --and their parents—a break from wintertime ‘cabin fever,’” says Richard Rhodes, Grace Chapel’s Pastor of Outreach. “It’s a chance to run around, play games, enjoy rides and shows, and have a lot of fun!
“This event is open to everyone whether they attend the church or not; we don't do this to proselytize. We love offering this fun event to give back to the community, and hope that they see there’s a lot more to our church than just Sunday morning services."
This event is free for everyone! Bring your children, family and neighbors to enjoy the fun. WinterBlast takes place on Saturday, March 2nd from 10:00AM – 3:00PM, at Grace Chapel’s Lexington Campus, located at 59 Worthen Road. For more information visit www.grace.org/winterblast.
