Fun in Fort Bend: Bounce Into Fall at Sugar Land Baptist Church | Community


Last Sunday afternoon I arrived at Sugar Land Baptist Church to find a crowded parking lot and big bouncy houses and bouncy slides and a gathering of dozens of families with young children holding pumpkins and buckets with candy.

The occasion was the church’s annual Fall Fun Fest, a free family event open to the public.

I have spotted children and adults dressed up as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Wonder Woman, to name a few. Others played with foam tubes in an attempt to tip over from their pedestal in the middle of an inflatable ring.

“We do it once a year, in the fall,” Amy Sims, associate pastor and children’s minister at Sugar Land Baptist told me. “And it’s just a family event. We have bouncy houses, train rides, face painting, all kinds of fun stuff, and carnival games hosted by all of our church members. So it’s just a big free event for the community.

I thought it was neat to see so many parents engaged and interacting with each other, many of whom were taking videos of their kids as they came down a slide.

Sims said she looks forward to this event every year as families settle into their fall routine with back to school. I asked Sims what she likes best about hosting events like this.

“Having the chance to welcome the community into our church and give them something fun,” Sims said. “That’s a big part of why we’re doing this.”
