Carterville Family Fun Day
CARTERVILLE -- A church in Carterville drew a crowd Saturday for its third annual Family Fun Day. More than 300 people came out to the free event at the Victory Baptist Church. There were bounce houses for the kids, face painting, and free food for everyone. There was also a drawing to win two bicycles.
Organizers say they hold the event to let people know about the church.
"The church is kind of hidden behind some apartments right here and so, really, to get the church's name out there, but also more importantly, we want to get the bible into the hands of the people," explains Kyle Smith, the pastor's assistant.
