The Strawberry Festival was held on June 7 with a record number of participants. It was estimated over 300 people came to enjoy the food, fellowship and fun. Our sign up table for Son Rock Kids Camp (VBS program) saw a great interest from the families, and the Evangelism and Outreach team were able to connect with the crowd to share a gospel tract and invite them to attend our church. We had many participants from the neighboring apartment complex, as well as from Hope Chapel who were excited by what they saw and asked how they could assist us with next year’s festival.
The children enjoyed the games, prizes, balloon animals and face painting. The puppet show and praise band attracted an appreciative audience, and the beautiful weather made it a great day for enjoying the fellowship of friends old and new.
This was not to be considered a fund raiser, rather an outreach, but after the accounting of receipts and expenses was complete, we were pleased to report a profit of $0.92.
Thank you to the more than 50 volunteers who gave of their time, energy and effort to make it possible! Thank you to those who prayed and invited people to come, and thank you to those who went above and beyond to ensure that a good time would be had by all!
