The first ever Firehouse Church “Back to School Bash” is in the books after this weekend, and it turned out to be a solid event for the group.

“We actually had people lined up to the street, and it went pretty quick as we moved all the school supplies in about an hour”, said Lead Pastor for the Church Jonathon Crider. “We pulled up in the morning well before the event started and cars were already in the parking lot, it was really great.”

Enough school supplies were given out Saturday morning for roughly one hundred students between the ages of Kindergarten and fifth grade.

Crider said that moving forward, he is not sure if the church will hold another event like this one, but that something is in the works.

“We’re probably going to do something for back to school, I don’t know if it will be exactly like this, as a lot of different organizations do something like this in the community, and had I known that before hand I might have done something different”, said Crider.

In addition to the church giving away school supplies, they also offered free haircuts to children, and also served a free hot dog lunch to nearly one hundred and sixty people that stopped by during the course of the event.
