A Time For Family, Friends, and Fun!

Fun

The church we just started attending had a family fun day this weekend. What a blast!!

Morning Star Church located at 1600 Feise Road in O'Fallon, Missouri puts on "Family Circus" each year. It is a time to bring family, friends, and fun all together.

I truly believe that as Christians, it is not our duty to "pound" the Bible on the heads of other people; it is to just show the love of Jesus to a lost and hurting nation. Evangelism and Missionary work doesn't have to be just for overseas. Morning Star Church and the volunteers have shown us just that this weekend.

I would like to give a big SHOUT OUT AND THANK YOU TO MORNING STAR CHURCH AND THE VOLUNTEERS WHO MADE THIS ALL POSSIBLE.

My Grandson Elijah had a delightful time! You should have seen him sleeping on the way home. They had some really cool stuff. Check out this video of the B.M.X. trick-riders.

Games and Fun

Elijah just loved the petting zoo.There were pygmy goats, a kangaroo, even a camel.

There was face painting, clowns, bounce-houses. Everything to wear a "almost 3 year old" out.

They also handed out free hot dogs, chips and drink.

All the people who put this great program together and all the volunteers, Thank You for showing the love of Jesus. You sure made Elijah's day!!! L.O.L.

Dancers

The Circus also had a group of talented young dancers. Here is a short clip of them:

Sponsers

I have always loved the quote," It takes a community to raise a child."

Many sponsors came together with Morning Star Church to make this event happen. Sponsor links are below in recognition to them. Thank you.

Showing Love

It is events like these that show us that there is still love.

Even with all the clouds and a bit of rain, it was a great day!

Most of all: Thanks to God who allows us to be in a place where we have the freedom to be able to have an event such as this!

froggy213, I apologize. I have been hub hopping this afternoon and I guess I forgot who I was commenting to. I really did enjoy the happiness of your hub, as I have been reading some hubs that were rather depressing and discouraging today. Blessings to you.

    In 2007, Greg's 23 month old Grandson was killed. At that point, he found a need to write about his family, crime, and local issues.
