WEST POINT, Ala. – Renovation Church hosted a fun-filled community fellowship event after its church service on Sunday, April 7. The non-denominational congregation came together to feed and entertain attendees at its first Spring Fling.

“The Spring Fling was an event designed to give our Easter guests another opportunity to meet all the incredible people at Renovation Church. It was a simple but yet very fun activity for the whole family,” said Pastor Dwayne Harbison.

A large bounce castle was set up outside of the church for the tiny attendees to enjoy, while siblings and friends doodled on the asphalt with brightly colored chalk. Parents and caregivers stood close by, supervising and chatting among themselves before making their way around to the back, where adults and older children congregated around a huge slingshot and cornhole boards.

As families and friends mingled with church visitors who popped in for the festivities, connections grew and seeds of relationships were planted.

The church wanted to have a filling option for the afternoon’s grub – smoked pulled pork, complete with all the fixings. The food was provided and prepared by parishioners of the church, volunteering their time and expertise to feed the hungry masses and share the love of Christ in the most Southern way possible – through good food.

Harbison said that after all was said and done, the event was a smashing success, smiling, “The food and fellowship was fun and we hope all had a great time.”
