Murphy-Harpst July Birthday Party

Would you like to brighten a child’s day? Canton First is sponsoring the July birthday party at Murphy-Harpst Children's Home on Saturday, July 20, and we need volunteers to help with the party, as well as donations of food and gift cards.  We will leave the church at 9:00 AM to drive to Cedartown and return by 3:00 PM.  We need donations of individual birthday cakes, soft drinks, and $25 gift cards for presents for the birthday youth.  Following the birthday party we’ll have some musical entertainment.  Musically talented folks who would like to participate are especially welcome.

Murphy-Harpst is a family friendly location, so children supervised by their parents are welcome. If you would like to sign up or have questions, please contact .
