Praisestock begins at 10 a.m. with a Community Worship Service. A love offering taken during the service will be donated to Food For The Hungry for its 2023 food drive. Contributions will also be accepted to support the ongoing ministry of Praisestock. From noon to 6:00PM, bands and worship teams will continue the worship event.

    variety of outdoor games – including Connect 4, corn hole, ring toss, treats, etc. as well as snacks and treats
  • We have 30 Christian ministries from our local area displaying highlights of their programs and many will have some form of fun or treats for the kiddos. Please take the time to visit with your children and interact with them; and perhaps learn a bit more about these wonderful local ministries.
  • Praisestock is organized by a group of volunteers. There are many areas in which to plug in and be a part of this day of Worship to our Lord and Savior! If you or your church group would like to chair the Children’s Corner next year or other areas of Praisestock please contact Dave Ewart Executive Chairman at sycamoredave@gmail.com or our Facebook
