    variety of outdoor games – including Connect 4, corn hole, ring toss, treats, etc. as well as snacks and treats
  • We have approximately 25-30 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!
