SPRING FAIR 2016

Join us Saturday, April 2nd for a SUPER FUN and FREE family event! Families will enjoy Springtime games, booths, and inflatable, and NEW this year, a guided adventure!

Road to the Resurrection
Each family will be equipped with a travel passport and follow the Road to the Resurrection! They will find out about Jesus life (waving palm branches in praise), his death on the cross (touching nails like the ones that pierced His hands and feet), visit His tomb (see the empty tomb and grave clothes) and learn how he arose from the grave!  They will hear the message of HOPE and be a part of a helium balloon release (symbolic of his ascension) and will receive a FREE gift when their passport is stamped up!  We are looking for actors, hosts, set builders, balloon fillers and distributors and tour guides! Contact Jennifer Johnson or Tina Grace for details!

Refreshment Tent
We will be serving Hot Dogs, Sno Cones, individual bags of chips, and bottled water! Want to help serve and grill?  Sign up at the Welcome Center!

Game Booths
We will have fun game booths for the children to visit! If you would like to host a booth or help someone else with their booth, contact Jessica Johnson! 

Guest Services
We will have a Guest Services table where Spring Fair guests can fill out a “HEY!” card and be entered into a drawing to win a DVD from the StoreHouse! If you would like to help at the Guest Services table, contact Tricia Gervich!
