River Rock Church hosts annual summer festival September 10

Entire community invited to free event with something for everyone 

On Sunday, September 10, River Rock Church will host their annual summer Festival event from 3-6 p.m. The event, which is completely free of charge, will take place on the grounds of River Rock Church at 6060 Belding Road, Rockford, Mich.

River Rock’s Festival event is an opportunity for the greater community to come together and simply have fun. What can you expect to do at Festival? Kids can enjoy inflatables, many kid’s games, face painting, pony rides, a petting zoo, a clown, prizes such as an American Girl Doll and electric scooter and more. But Festival isn’t just for kids! Adults who attend can listen to live music, learn to square dance, and new this year, play a game of bubble soccer thanks to Grand Rapids Battle Ball.

Festival is free to attend but guests are invited to bring a nonperishable food item to support Hand2Hand Ministries, which delivers hope to hungry children—early childhood through high school—by mobilizing schools and churches to provide nutritious food over the weekends. Hand2Hand is active in Rockford Public Schools.

In 2016, River Rock welcomed approximately 800 people to Festival. And while a great turnout is expected, the true goal is to give back to the community.

“Since our beginning in 2000, River Rock Church has existed to prayerfully connect those in the greater Rockford community to Jesus and one another. We seek to do this in a variety of ways including worship services, serving opportunities inside and outside of our church, programming for all ages, and community outreach events like Festival,” said River Rock’s Senior Pastor, Jon Huizenga. “Festival is something we can give back to the community who has blessed our church in so many ways.”
