Volunteer for Dad Fest

DADFEST is a great opportunity to show God's love to our local community. This event celebrates all of the father's and father figures in our lives. The heart of this outreach is to invite our family and friends to church where they can experience love and joy through community, fellowship and fun. We can not do this without you!

It takes over 300 volunteers to make DADFEST a success. Volunteers are needed for parking direction, carnival games, inflatables, grounds keepers, registration, greeters, cafe, and the DIY craft area. Each volunteer shift is only an hour and a half making it possible to serve and attend the event. Every volunteer receives a free t-shirt.
