Arol McFadden, the church’s Lead Pastor, is excited about the event’s potential impact – “As part of our Missions 2012 program, our focus for August is on health care. We are opening our church and our hearts to the community in the hope that we can provide a venue for folks that need free or affordable health information or services. What a great way to spend an hour or two out with the family.”
