TIFFIN– Excessive heat alerts and storms brewing to the north and west didn’t put a damper on things as the Life Pointe Christian Faith Center hosted it’s fourth annual CommUNITY Day event Saturday, July 23, at the Tiffin soccer fields.
“This is the event we put on each year to give back to the community,” Caleb Thomas, the community coordinator for Life Pointe said.
“We’re very blessed to be having people coming out,” he added.
The four-hour event featured a handful of local businesses and vendors, face painting, free food and bouncy houses. In addition, units from the Tiffin Fire Department, Johnson County Ambulance Service and the sheriff’s office were also on public display along with the University of Iowa’s AirCare air ambulance helicopter. Live entertainment was also on the venue along with several prizes to be given away.
“It’s just a time where we wanted to honor the community and give back, and let people know we care about the community,” Thomas said. “The community takes everybody, so we wanted everybody to come out and enjoy, and have a good time.”
More than 400 people attended the event on Saturday.
The Life Pointe Christian Faith Center is located at 400 Stephans St. in Tiffin and is under the guidance of Pastors Tommy and Lynette Roberts. Visit their website at http://experiencethepointe.com.
