email@example.com BOONSBORO - For Austin Fowler, going to the Spiritual Life Center at Benevola United Methodist Church after school is a treat. "I get to play cool stuff and then we eat," the 7-year-old said. The "cool stuff" Austin talked about is part of Fit Kids 4 Christ, a monthly exercise and recreation program at the church that is woven in a subtle religious framework. Held the second Thursday of the month from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., the event recently attracted more than two dozen elementary-age children who exploded through the doors of the full-sized gymnasium at the recently expanded church on Benevola Church Road.
