Open to all middle school students after each Rocky River High School home football game. This is an annual RRUMC community outreach event. When someone chooses to volunteer they are supporting local students and schools. It’s more than a game night, it’s a part of God's ministry to the community. Adults and high school youth, we need your help supervising, refereeing, and working the snack stand. To volunteer, e-mail Steven Young at Thank you!
