Mission Statement


Sunnyslope Skate Club is a ministry of Sunnyslope Mennonite Church whose purpose is to reach out to our community by giving children and their families safe recreational activities while providing an opportunity to learn to know the Lord as their Savior and guide

Description


Sunnyslope Skate Club began in the summer of 2000. Over 6000 youth have visited the skate park since its inception. On Friday nights from 7 - 9 pm approximately 30-35 rails, boxes and ramps are pulled out of storage and set up as a skate park for the neighborhood youth in Sunnyslope. Approximately 75-125 children show up each Friday night to skate and hang out. A Deejay blares christian alternative, rock, rap and worship music. There is a 5 to 10 minute break to hear an inspirational or biblically based message tailored to the age and interests of the youth. Fun and excitement is fostered by giveaways, periodic skate competitions, celebratory meals, occasional live music and visits by various performers.
