Empire Roller Rink invites you to its Christian Skate Nights, held from 7 to 10 p.m. every Friday. Admission is $7 and includes regular skates.
“Adults are welcome too, and little ones for that matter,” said Mark Reagan, who proposed the idea for Christian Skate Nights to rink owners Willie and Lisa Trent.
If skaters attend with a church group of 15 or more people, admission is $6 per person. There will be games, couples’ skating and backwards skating.
Any music requests will be checked for foul language and suggestive content. Reagan said the music should be “glorifying the Lord.”
Participants may also have worship teams or a speaker, such as a pastor, come and perform or give a talk. The worship team can set up simple instruments, like guitars, in the corner of the skating floor and play for 30 to 40 minutes.
In order to schedule a speaker or band call the Roller Rink at 573-443-7375. The Empire Roller Rink is located at 1305 Business Loop 70E.
