Kidfest at the CORE Church of Troy

This past Friday, August 1, The CORE Church of Troy partnered with the Missing Link Street Ministry, led by Rev. Willie D. Bacote, for a day of fun, food and friends. The day long event featured a bounce house for the kids, courtesy of Bounce Around, face and arm painting, basketball shootout and other games, along with a ton of food. Hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch and pizza for dinner, provided by our city councilman Mark McGrath, along with free ice cream, provided by Troy Mayor Harry Tutunjian. Throughout the day, many people from the city of Troy and Renssalaer County, as well as several community service agencies, came to help serve meals and spend part of the day with Troy's inner-city families. The day ended with a movie for the kids, courtesy of Kevin (K.P. ) Pryor of LOOK Inc. Also many thanks to Rudy (aka DJ Midnight) for providing sounds throughout the afternoon and evening. There were many people who came together to make this event happen, including volunteers from Missing Link Street Ministry and from the CORE Church of Troy. Thank you to all who played a part in this first of many community family events.
The CORE Church of Troy exists for the purpose of making Jesus Christ known in the heart of the city. It is through partnerships like this that we will be most successful in accomplishing the mission God has called us to.
