MECHANICSBURG – After each Mechanicsburg High School home football game, students are once again invited to Mechanicsburg United Methodist Church for their annual “Overtime” events. Sponsored by the youth ministry at the church, “Overtime” is a safe, chaperoned party for all students in grades 7-12. Friday is the season’s home opener.
For a $1 donation to partially offset expenses, each party offers a live DJ, unlimited food and beverages, ping-pong, foosball, air hockey, and more. “Overtime” begins immediately after each home game and lasts until midnight.
Entrance to the church’s fellowship hall can be made through the side entrance off of the Race Street parking lot. The fellowship hall is accessible to those with disabilities through an elevator at that same entrance.
“This has been an outreach of our church for over a decade,” said Matthew Smith, who organizes the events annually with Pastor Mimi Ault, and church members Elaine Riley and Ann Bogard. “The church just wants to give the youth of Mechanicsburg a safe place to go after the home football games, letting them know that our entire community cares about them and their safety,” added Smith.
If any community members would like to volunteer or donate to this program, or for any parents/guardians with questions, please call the church at 834-2410.
