Christian Family Day
August 25 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
Mark your calendars now for Mt. Vernon’s Christian Family Day on August 25th. This outdoor event on downtown 9th Street, involves several Jefferson County Churches. Each church will have a booth providing information about their ministries. This is a great opportunity to learn about the wide variety of churches located in Jefferson County. Churches will also provide children and family activities throughout the day. Last year’s activities included crafts, ring toss, giveaways, story time, fun photo opportunities, and more!
A free kid’s zone will be set up with inflatables, laser tag, a petting zoo and more. Several food concessions from local restaurants and food vendors will be available for purchase all day long.
Six local Christian bands and artists will provide live music all day long beginning at 12:30 p.m.
At 5:15 p.m., Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child recipient, Luis Gonzalez, from Panama, will share his testimony and message.
The event will end with an evening worship service featuring local musicians, a community choir, and special speaker and local sports legend, Kent Williams, starting at 6 p.m.
If you are a church or food vendor wanting to participate in this event please call (618) 242-3151. Thank you!
