FunFest 5 Experience the Light!

It begins! This is the month that we begin to ramp up to FunFest 5. Each year thousands of people come to our campus for a night of safe, upbeat fun. We touched a nerve when we used the words, free, safe place, families, on Halloween.

Many believers do not take advantage of the number 2 secular event in the USA.(almost as much money is made as Christmas) Some are on the defensive dreading the night. Others take a different tack and seek to turn the night into an opportunity. This is what we have done for the last 5 years.

One lady came to the first year with her child. Later she decided to attend church somewhere. She asked her child where would she like to go. The child replied, to the fun church. They attended, began their journey with Jesus, were baptized, served on hospitality for a year now the mom volunteers in childrens.
