Last years Community Festival took place on August 19, 2023 and we were blessed with almost 500 Community Members in attendance.
Featured musical guests: Render The Hearts and Jeremy Liles.
Entertainment from comedian John Muehleiser who gave everyone a laugh with his ventriloquist skills.
Jamal Luke gave an inspirational speech!
Food trucks were on sight to provide tasty treats and drinks.
Many vendors set up their crafts and items for sale.
We had free hair cuts and back packs filled with school supplies for the kids in the community.
We gave away 600 backpacks to get them ready for back to school!
A large kids area provided a place to play games and win prizes and we even had a dunk tank that was loved by all!
Some community vendors also set up in order to provide the community with a mini job fair.
So many amazing volunteers both in our church and the community.  
We were also blessed to have the help of a few area churches: Fellowship Christian, First Church of God, Grafton Church, and Troy Christian Church.
Overall it was a great day with great weather and lots of fun, fellowship and community interaction!
