JOPLIN, Mo. - Sitting through Sunday School for a kid is a little difficult, so once a year a local church invites them outdoors for fun in the sun during the service.
Dozens of kids came out for Central Christian Center's Annual Big Splash today.
There were pools, water balloons, and squirt guns for the kids to play with, and even some shaved ice for them to munch on.
For nearly thirty years they've held this event to give the younger members of the church a chance to cool off and enjoy being outside during the service.
This is just one of many fun events the church has, and it's one that children always look forward to.
"I can't really explain it, but it's really fun...It's just more time to hangout with your friends and have fun," says Sunday School Student Riley Jones.
Central Christian Center is always having community events.
