A parade on Saturday. Worship in the park on Sunday. Food and music. Lots of music.
That about sums up the great weekend we had at Marion’s annual Swamp Fox Festival.
Resurrection has been hosting Sunday in the Park for the past five years. Each year it gets a little bit bigger and better. This year, with the help of the Swamp Fox planning committee, we were able to bring in two great bands to compliment three local church bands. Among the Thirsty from Cleawater, Florida and Hyland from the Twin Cities area headlined an afternoon concert that began with bands from Living Water UMC and Marion Christian as well as our own With Faith praise band.
A Children’s Activity area was set up in the park that included inflatable play zones and face painting. The food booth and popcorn stand, combined with the undesignated offering taken during worship raised close to $1000 for local ministries working in partnership to build the kingdom of God in our community.
Our thanks go out to the many people who give of their time and energy to make this day in the park such a wonderful time.
