Impact Church in Roman Forest will host a Spring Carnival March 9 for area families.
The event will feature free hotdogs, two bounce houses for children and prizes.

“Come join us for an afternoon of fun and kick off Spring Break with a bang as we seek to give back to our community, build relationships, be intentional with the Gospel of Jesus and be excited,” said Pastor Mike Holt of Impact Church.

The event will be held in the city park in Roman Forest from 4 – 7 p.m. All of the activities are free for the community and everyone is welcome to attend.

“Our goal is to impact the community with the gospel of Jesus in a way much different than our cultural norm,” said Holt. “We are a church on a mission and by God’s design our goal is to meet people where they are in community to share and inspire others to live out their faith within the public eye and not just behind the doors of the church building. Our mission is to teach and make disciples and to go OUT to all the nations to share Jesus. We are on mission to help the least of these, to bring joy to the elderly, widows, single parents, and a focus on the college culture, our next generation, in a way that takes the church to them. In saying this, we are an Acts 2 church with no religious barriers, just freedom in Jesus.”
