Back to All Events

Back-to-School Bash

Celebrate the end of summer with this fun, FREE event for the community. We’ll have a DJ, inflatables, ice cream and more! We are also hosting a community swap, which gives families a chance to get ready for the school year by exchanging new and gently worn children’s clothing and school-related items.

Community Swap:

  • How it works: Bring as many children's items as you would like to swap! Each item will be counted towards one exchange, so that you can leave with things that are “new to you!” (Please pre-sort your items by size for a quicker check-in.)

  • What to bring:  New or gently used children's clothing and/or shoes.  We will also accept sports equipment (cleats, dance shoes, etc.), accessories (belts, backpacks, hats, etc.), and books.  

  • What NOT to bring:  Electronics, car seats, items that are not clean, clothing with rips or stains, used socks/underwear, incomplete/non-working items, and toys.

  • All unclaimed items will be donated to the Salvation Army

  • Prefer to drop off items before the swap?  You can check in and receive your swap tickets in advance:

    • Tuesday-Friday, Sept 3-6, noon-5pm, in the church office (Mountain Ave entrance)

    • Friday, Sept 6, 6-8pm, in our Kids Clubhouse (next to church main entrance doors)

Have nothing to swap?  No problem! Join us anyway for the back-to-school bash FUN!

Still have questions?  Email event organizer Tori Meisch, or call the church office at 973.338.8536.
