CENTRAL GLENDALE — Three local churches joined forces Saturday during a community fair aimed at giving back to neighborhood kids.
Children dove onto a water slide and created arts and crafts at the Community Kids' Fair at Kenwood Street and Wilson Avenue. The First United Methodist Church, Glendale Presbyterian Church and First Baptist Church of Glendale hosted the fair to boost neighborhood involvement.
"We just wanted to do something for the kids in the community," said Nancy Person, the church's Children and Family ministries director.
The First United Methodist Church began hosting the fair a few years ago in an effort to become more visible in the community, Nancy Person said.
Church leaders decided last year to expand the fair and allow nearby ministries to get involved, she said.
"It's also an opportunity for the different churches in the community to work together," Person said. "Basically, we are all trying to do the same thing: create God's love for the children. This gives a chance to all do that together."
