Good Neighbor Festival

Our 2nd Annual Good Neighbor Festival was held on May 2nd and 3rd, 2015. The festival included a fish fry, live auction, bounce house, DJ, photo booth, bake sale, and more! 
 
With the proceeds from the last two years, we have been able to host several free events to the community such as:
-2 community fish fry dinners
-6 community movie nights (4 were outside during the summer and we played children's movies) complete with popcorn and either snow cones or hot chocolate!
-Praise band concert
-Raeford/Hoke Hometown Christmas Event- Members of the Hoke County Chamber of Commerce closed down Main Street in early December to put on the first annual Hometown Christmas, complete with pictures with Santa, Christmas caroling, horse and carriage rides, and Christmas movies. Our church provided two hot chocolate stations, popcorn, a Christmas themed photo booth, and Christmas carols sung beautifully by the choir. 
 
 We have also donated funds to other areas such as:
-Childcare: giving parents the chance to attend church events
-Habitat for Humanity: building homes for families that suffer from poverty. 
-National Child Safety: sponsoring 75 children who were participating in a drug awareness program
-Raeford United Methodist Church Open Access Fund: Once the church raises enough money to build an elevator, handicapped or restricted people from the community can have access to all of the church. You can do the same by visiting the RUMC GoFundMe Page!
