Make sure your summer plans for your children/grandchildren includes a visit to the G-Force Adventure Park during the week of July 20 - 23 from 5 - 8 p.m.

Registration is happening now for ages 3 and UP. There will be exciting adventures such as wonderful Bible stories, great music, cool crafts, exciting science, fun games, and more!  We’ll also meet people from the Bible who used their actions to do something amazing with God!
