RiverTree Church has annual fall festival



October 20, 2014 - 12:00 AM

Back by popular demand, the RiverTree Christian Church had its fall festival on Sunday.
Pastor Matt Bycroft said it is the third year for the church to put on the festival.
“The first year was when the recession had just hit,” Bycroft said. “We asked ourselves what can we do to help the community out.”
Since the church has quite a bit of open land members decided to put together a carnival-like event. It was a huge success with community members.
The church didn’t have the festival last year but Bycroft said the church received many requests to bring it back.
“It’s a way of showing God’s love to the community,” he said.
The event was free to the public. There was food, tractor rides, live music, games.
Church members performed music and the Iola Jazz Band performed.
Families could go through a mini pumpkin patch and pick out one free pumpkin to take home.
The church estimates that 300 to 350 people attended on Sunday.
