On a weekly basis during the spring, summer, and fall months we welcome over 1,000 people to outdoor facilities. We are raising funds to put in outdoor bathrooms near the pavilion. We are so excited to be expanding our property in this way and are asking you to partner with us in this expansion. You can give a “one time flush” or you can pledge to “plunge” on a monthly basis from now through July (5 months). However you decide to give we are so grateful for your contribution!
Total Funds Raised
Throughout the year, our First Friends adult, youth, and children’s ministries hold events in the pavilion and ball fields during which the new restrooms would also be available. Our First Friends sports ministry would likewise benefit greatly from the restroom addition.
Our sports ministry exists to share the gospel to both youth and adult participants and families. This ministry is the largest outreach of our church and in many, ways the face of our church to the community. Providing quality restroom facilities is a concrete way to serve our Stark County community, our church family, and the athletes who compete in our sports leagues.
We have used porta potties for the last 20 years. There are seasons in soccer and baseball when we have 200 participants on the fields at once, including parents, siblings, and grandparents. There can be as many as 400 to 500 people trying to use two porta potties. With this heavy usage, cleanliness and resupplying the porta potties becomes a major problem, forcing some families to cross our busy parking lot to find restroom facilities in our main building.
A new restroom building would be a way to honor our community guests and church with appropriate facilities on the ball fields. Would you partner with us and take the plunge?
