Winning At Home’s “the underground” Moves to New Location, New Night

Winning At Home’s “the underground” Moves to New Location, New Night

Winning At Home is excited to announce the return of their teen initiative, the underground, to a new location at the Park Theatre, 248 South River, in downtown Holland. The fall kick-off event will take place on Sunday, October 21. This popular teen event is back after a summer hiatus and organizers feel the new downtown venue will bring even more attendees.   

“We’re excited about being in the heart of the city. We think the new location will be more accessible and the move to Sunday night, instead of Saturday, will prevent interference with other activities,” says Doug Swink, a speaker for Winning At Home who is overseeing the event.

This initiative began last year and serves to bring biblical teaching and biblical worship to the lives of area teens.  The event is free and designed for anyone seventh grade through high school age. Subsequent services will be held on the following dates: December 9, 2012, January 27, 2013 and March 24, 2013.
