On Aug. 20, Fellowship Church, 2800 E. Sprague St., led by Pastor Tony Jones, held its first Family Fest.

“The purpose of Family Fest was to engage families in and around the greater Winston-Salem area, to give back to the community, and to empower them with vital information,” said Pastor Tony.

The event was attended by over 400 people and included free food, health and dental screenings, school supplies giveaway, free haircuts, and an educational symposium which was led by teachers, guidance counselors and administrators from the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System.

In addition, there was a financial adviser present who spoke on preparation for college tuition through savings and investments.

The crowning moment of the event was the opening of Fellowship Church’s new state-of-the art

children’s facility, Kid Zone. Kid Zone was a major renovation of Fellowship Church that started

in February 2016 and involved a total overhaul and upgrade of all systems and technology to specifically minister to the needs of early age and elementary children.

Jones said, “I believe that children are a worthy investment that will pay off dividends not only for our local church, but for society as a whole. Kid Zone is the type of facility that I wish I had been exposed to when I was their age. Statistics show the majority of people that decide to follow Jesus Christ do so before the age of 18, which behooves the local church to invest heavily in order to influence our children to choose Jesus Christ at an early age.”

Pastor Tony continued, “This is just the tip of the iceberg as we plan on doing further investment in our facility to minister to middle and high school students as well, because we have to meet today’s generation where they are.”
