Our playground is being dedicated to the Memory of Matthew Clegg. Matthew, a member of our Church family, passed away in May 2016 at the age of 7. It is our hope that this playground will serve as a lasting tribute to Matthew by providing fun and fellowship to children of all ages for many years to come.
Matthew was a typical 7 year old boy. He loved Star Wars, Legos, and video games. He got straight A's in school at Mt.Comfort Elementary and loved to dance to any upbeat music. He enjoyed being outdoors; going to parks and swimming. He liked Colts football and was a Peyton Manning fan, but he never got the chance to attend a game.
He grew up with the church since he was born. He liked to attend Sunday School and Vacation Bible School every summer. Some of his favorite activities included our Halloween Parties and Easter Egg hunts.
He is missed greatly by all who knew him and is talked about often. We hope this playground will give others the chance to get to know him and keep his memory alive.
