First Congregational Church in Hamilton hosted their first Marriage & Family Ministry event on Saturday November 9: Family Rock Climbing Night at the Gordon College Bennett Center.  Here is what one of their members had to say about the experience:

“Carving out family time that is also fun can get tricky as winter approaches in Massachusetts. First Congregational Church in Hamilton was looking for a great family outing that would appeal to all ages and La Vida came to the rescue! Over 15 families met at the indoor rock climbing gym at the Bennet Center, and the awesome La Vida staff took over. Kids from age 4 to 15 scaled the walls under the careful eye of the trained belayers. Those that were waiting to climb played games in the courts next door. Parents were able to hang out and enjoy catching up with one another while cheering their kids on. After all the climbing was over, our group retreated to one of the Bennett Center classrooms for a great pizza dinner. There has been lots of feedback to do this event again! La Vida is a great resource to the Gordon College students, but FCCH is finding that they have so much to offer to church groups and families as well. We are looking forward to climbing again sometime soon and maybe utilizing the outdoor spaces when it gets warmer out. Thank you La Vida for a great night!”  Kristen Broughton, member of FCCH
