9/11: After 10 years are Christians Ready to Cry Out to God for Awakening?
It’s almost here… only days away and you just don’t want to miss it.
And what a day of fun it will be. Funnel cakes, cotton candy, bounce houses, face painting, waterslides and paintball; what more could a child ask for. Tri-tip, pizza, shopping and music; a day of rest and restoration for the entire family. Over 25 pastors will be dunked in the dunk tank that day. Such joy and excitement as the community fellowships and binds together in this way. The church of Sonoma County has a wonderful op- portunity this coming September day; to worship with one voice, in humility and with gratitude to a God the whole world needs to see… in us…in unity…as one.

School-aged children of needy families received backpacks filled with school supplies at the annual festival that brought together the whole community in a day of free festivities.
By Cathleen Jones
The Redwood Gospel Mission has organized the City Kids Festival for 13 years with the last six events being held in downtown Juilliard Park. However the accolades for a smooth-running event go to God. He is the one who brings individuals, churches, families, businesses and children under one umbrella of love and service to reach out a helping hand to these needy families.
About 38 groups, churches, businesses, and social services, all joined forces to staff and maintain over 50 activity and information booths in the park on Saturday, August 20, 2011. Hundreds of families attended the event even though the sun didn’t make an appearance until almost 1 pm.
