On Saturday, April 24, in four short hours more than 800 people saw the love of Christ in action.

Vintage Church, a year old church plant in the NC East District, held their second annual Kidz Carnival.  K-LOVE, a fast growing area Christian station, helped spread the word about the event, then provided music throughout the day, finally giving away awesome concert tickets. Community residents were invited to come enjoy an afternoon of fun with the entire family.  Attractions included inflatable’s for all ages, a dunking booth, carnival games & prizes, hot dogs, drinks, cotton candy, sno cones, and popcorn. All of this was completely FREE!

The idea of a free Kidz Carnival came about last year shortly after the launch of this new church.   With the slumping economy Vintage wanted to provide a day of fun for those that may not be able to afford a beach vacation or day at the local amusement park.  People asked repeatedly, “how much does this cost?”  When they were told that it was all free, they wanted to know why.

Our response,

Because we love this community that God has called us to serve!

Several of the families who attended the carnival are now attending Vintage and experiencing a true movement of God in the Triad area of North Carolina.
