Dodgeball Tournament

Saturday  |  May 20th  |  1:30-4:00 pm  |  Grand St. Center Gym

FPCO will be hosting a Dodgeball tournament for youth groups in the Los Ranchos Presbytery. Teams of 8 middle and high school students will be competing for bragging rights as the best Dodgeball playing youth group in the Presbytery. Even smaller churches are encouraged to bring their students to join together with kids from other churches and perhaps share the glory! Registration begins at 1:30 pm and the tournament begins at 2:00 pm. The youth group from Canyon Hills Presbyterian Church is providing a BBQ dinner, and worship afterwards at New Hope’s 5:00 pm service (Location: First Pres. Church) is available. This event is an effort by youth group leaders to renew connections between our Los Ranchos Presbytery churches. FPCO is proud to be a part of this endeavor! Contact Norma Galleana (norme99@aol.com) or Sarah Tannas (sarahkathleent@gmail.com) if you would like to register.
