Parents and kids alike appreciate Sk8te Days at Epworth. Parent Karen Barwick says that “she is thrilled that Epworth has been willing to support skateboarders. The non-competitive nature of skateboarding and the way the kids really help and applaud each other shows their love for the sport in a very supportive, good-natured ways. We typically have to travel to Ocean City for our son to be part of a skateboarding community .”

Tim and Monique Bamforth echo Barwick’s gratitude, “The Epworth Skate Days have given children in our area the opportunity to do what they love doing in a safe and appropriate environment. We are thankful to Epworth Church and other supporters for spearheading this initiative.”
