Youth at St. Mark’s, Shelby built an indoor playground to provide kids a safe area to play. As one of the youth members of the parish, Parker, was beginning his senior year, the Rev. Daniel Orr discussed with him what he wanted to do with Sunday School. Parker, who is interested in engineering, suggested a group effort to build a playground. In the city of Shelby, there is no area for kids to play downtown nor is there a playground at many of the churches within the city. The vestry approved this project and bought the supplies. Parker designed the playground; the Sunday School children (ages 3-17) all helped. The entire playground was painted by the youngest children. The goal is for the playground to serve children in St. Mark’s and children from neighboring churches as well.
