‘Praise on the Pond’ makes a splash

By Paige Nash

Lakeview United Methodist Church held their “Praise on the Pond” Fall Festival Sunday, October 23. The festival featured live music, bounce houses, lots of delicious food, trunk-or-treating and a cake auction.  

New Preschool Director, Holli Carrigan said, “The ‘Praise on the Pond’ was such an amazing little event for our little town with families enjoying each other and kids laughing, but the main thing that really made this night so special was the feeling of safety and God’s presence. In the times we are living in now, it’s hard to find family events like this. It was amazing to feel that.” 

The cake auction was a big hit featuring a range of cakes, cookies, cupcakes and brownies. The auction brought in a grand total of $961. These proceeds will be used to purchase an interactive smartboard benefiting their preschool program.  

“I was so blessed to be a part of this event and already can’t wait to do it again next year,” Carrigan said.
