What: SKATE IT UP 2013
It’s 2013 and I can’t believe we’re doing this for our 6th year or so. I think back to the start of it all….as a skater pushes through the parking lot of our church pastor Sal sees him and thinks “we need to give skaters a place too” so he had a small skatepark built in the parking lot by the Truth Student building. Mike Smith was the youth pastor and Frank Dana was an intern and I was just some guy that wanted to serve. Thanks Sal for including skaters, thanks Frank for getting it started and giving skate it up a name , thanks Mike for asking me to help out, I never thought it would lead to this. This year we will have a true man of God, pro skater and now my friend Brian Sumner back to join us again. He has encouraged me through his testimony and through his social media presence, through the years. We are also able to get one of Brian’s local friend’s Josh Harmony to join us. I’m stoked about this year’s event, we’ve got 4 trips to Woodward!! (A big shout out to Woodward for their support and the best action sports camps in the world) a bunch of food and prizes for all who come. Only God knows what next year will bring but this year I’d like the thank our sponsors, Southside, Reliance/Siren skateboards, Skate808 philosophers wheels, Middleman skateboards, Vans, Pro Design pads and Ruben aka “Ya Bro Roo” and Aaron for the rhymes and beats.
As a big bonus this year Brian and Josh will join our youth on Sunday morning at the Truth Student services. Brian will speak and Josh will sing. We hope you can come skate Saturday and come to worship and learn with us Sunday at 8:15 and 9:30.
