Pigtoberfest is the Open Door version of the traditional church picnic where our enitre church family gathers together to eat and play together. Enjoy the pulled pork (provided by the church) and various side dishes (brought by you, our church family) as you spend time with the church friends that you see regularly as well as those from other campuses that you see occasionally.

Games and activities are planned for kids and grown-ups alike, including a Corn Hole tournament, yard games, the annual quilt raffle, a Petting Zoo, and a special ice cream treat for children, called Top Drop, that you won’t believe.

Pick up and fill a sidedish pan, bring your lawn chairs and blankets for a fun day of fellowship with our church family. We’ll see you there!
