The first annual church cookout “Fam Jam” at New Community is just the first of many more to come. The purpose was to demonstrate to everyone that God’s people can have fun in a Christlike manner outside the four walls of the church.

There was fun and games for all ages and fantastic food trucks that featured breakfast crepes and ice cream favorites. Children and adults enjoyed a water attraction feature at the Central Park venue along with motorcycle rides, volleyball, dominoes, chess, face painting, back massages and good fellowship.

“I, for one, am most happy with the turnout,” says Pastor Jamond Jimmerson. “We had approximately 200 people in attendance all varying from different Adventist churches in the area. As the Pastor, I thank God for all of those who helped make this effort a success, with special thanks to Anthea King and Launice Freeny Brown.”

Anthea King, Family Life coordinator, shares, “The Fam Jam cookout brought about unity in the community with three churches: Parkhill, Boston Street and New Community.” To God be the Glory for this great thing He has done and the great things He will continue to do for us in the future!
