Church’s fall festival is major fundraiser

Published 9:38am Tuesday, September 17, 2013

The youth group at the Ohio Furnace Enterprise Baptist Church is hosting its fourth annual Fall Festival and Gospel Sing from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday at the church.

The festival will include games for kids, a petting zoo, concessions, face painting, inflatables, door prizes, hayrides, vendors and a silent auction.

“Scentsy, Mary Kay, arts and crafts, household items and many other vendors will be at the festival,” Kyle Stormes, assistant youth director at the church, said. “The silent auction is loaded with great items this year. It should be a lot of fun.”

A one-night stay at the Ashland Plaza Hotel, a trip to Greenbo Lake State Park, a trip to Carter Caves and Marshall football tickets are a few of the items included in the silent auction.

Entertainment will be provided by East to West Trio, Andy McGinnis Ministries, Nobel Bentley, Bobby Blanton, Kenney Kelley Ministries and others.

Concessions will be available at the festival.

“We had around a hundred people in attendance the first year we did this,” Stormes said. “Last year we had 300, so it keeps growing and that’s good.”

Proceeds from the festival help support the church’s youth department, which holds a free camp once a year for kids aged 12 and up. The camp is in Bidwell for a week every summer. The festival is the major fundraiser for the camp.
