Family Fun Day

We're hosting our third annual Family Fun Day at the Herrin City Park on Sunday, September 7 from 1-7

and we're inviting all of Herrin to come out for an afternoon of fun, games and food and an opportunity to learn more about he Herrin House of Hope.

We are days away from opening the doors for the ministry and need to raise money for two main goals.  

First we want to register 100 people as Sponsors of the Day.   With monthly donations of $21.00 or a one time gift of $250, you will support the ministry for one day. We'll recognize you or your business that day and you can have the honor of making sure the needy in our community another day of hope. If you want to be one of our monthly donors, you can CLICK HERE and set up a reoccurring donation from your bank or credit card. 

Second, we want people and businesses to make a one-time donation to help pay down the mortgage on our facilities.  The quicker we pay off that debt, the quicker we can dedicate all our donations to helping people in our community.  You can also make a one time donation toward that cause by CLICKING HERE.

The Family Fun Day is a great way for us to introduce the ministry to our community. The park will be bustling with activity all afternoon.  Here's a glimpse of what we've got in store for you.

CLICK HERE TO:
Become a regular donor to the ministry
OR
Make a one-time donation to pay down our mortgage

         

Learn About The Herrin House of Hope - We'll have a booth with all the information about the new Herrin House of Hope ministry.  You can ask questions, sign up for our newsletter, volunteer to help and make a contribution for the ministry. 

 

Free Concerts -  Christian bands, praise teams and gospel group will perform throughout the afternoon at the stage in the city park.  Everything from local artists to regional favorites will take the stage and inspire you with their music.  Come out and enjoy the music free of charge!

Great Food - Churches from our community will be cooking up some favorites to feed the crowd that afternoon.  Come hungry and enjoy some of the great creations from our cooks.  Remember, all the money goes to fund the Herrin House of Hope

Silent Auction - We'll put some great merchandise up for auction at our Family Fun Day and give you the chance to go home with some great prizes while you help the Herrin House of Hope.  If you want to donate something big or small, email us and let us know.

Children's Area  -  What would a family fun day be without activities and games for the kids.  We're hosting a Children's Fair with all the games kids love to play.  Purchase a sheet of tickets and turn them loose for all the fun they can have.

Games for Adults - Alright, we're all children at heart, so we've got some great games for adults as well.  Volleyball, basketball and a host of other team sports.  Just register your team and come show your stuff.
