Following the parade, the community is invited to enjoy a day of fun, food and games being held on the church campus.

Vendor spaces are available for rent. The celebration will continue Sunday, Aug. 6, with one Homecoming Service at 9:30 a.m. Pastor Benton will be the speaker. A three-night revival will follow Aug. 7-9, with speakers Pastor Clinton McFarland of Grace Baptist Church on Monday, Pastor Marlin Harris of New Life Baptist Church on Tuesday and Pastor Keith Brooks, All Nations Praise and Worship, on Wednesday.
