What is the Team Carpenter Summer Fun Club?

We exist to serve the children and families who reside in the neighborhoods surrounding Laird, Dudley and Fulton Streets in East Akron.   Kids are invited to join us this Summer for healthy and safe Christ centered "Drop In" activities at the Fulton Street playground.  We offer groups games and sports like Dodge Ball, Touch Football, Basketball, Ping Pong, Cornhole, Tag etc.  Table games such as Uno, Connect Four along with arts-n-crafts are part of what we do as well.  Lunch and dinner are provided for the kids.  We have occaisonal special events such as our Wednesday Morning Trips to the movie theatre and our Saturday Nature hikes in area Parks.  Kids are free to come and go as they please from the Fulton Playground.  We advise parents and caregivers to discuss their preferences/rules for the children as to when they leave home, what time to come home etc

We offer the neighborhood kids and their families the opportunity to attend Sunday Church services at Tallmadge Church of the Nazarene.  We provide transportation and typically pick up around 9:45am on Sunday mornings and return to the neighborhood no later than 1pm.  Just let us know if you would like to come.   Our Church is a "come as you are" Christ centered Church. 

Who Are We and How To Reach Us..

We are members of the Tallmadge Church of the Nazarene.  We believe we are all called to serve God.  Our work within your neighborhood is one of the ways that we serve Him.

We are all unpaid volunteers and seek only to reflect Jesus to the kids and families that live in the community.  All of our volunteers are background safety checked and have many years of experience working with children.
