To help serve the needs of our church children, as well as the larger community, COGS is in the process of building a playground off of the Education Wing. Sunday School classes are welcome to use the space during class time, but church families are also welcome to utilize the space at any time (although a private daycare rents the facility from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday).
The entire area is surrounded by a 6-foot high fence for the safety of the little ones.
There are currently two “zones” available for play.
- Between the buildings, there is a small climbing structure with slide on top of a poured rubber surface. This area is designed for children up to 2 years old.
- The large green and orange structure in the mulched area, plus 4 spring bouncers, is deigned for children 2-5 years old.
There is also a brick patio between the buildings, right outside of the Gathering Area.
Older, middle- and high school-aged children are welcome to utilize the basketball and volleyball courts located near the pavilion.
COGS is continually raising funds towards the next phase of the playground, targeted to children over 5 years old. This phase will cost upwards of $50,000. Donations are very appreciated and can be give in two ways:
- Via your Sunday offering and labeled “playground fund”
- Mail to COGS and labeled “playground fund”
