Our kids grow up so fast, don’t they? That’s why Spirit Life Church believes the milestones in a child’s life are a big deal and should be treated accordingly.

Promotion Sunday is our attempt to do just that. This is an annual event sponsored by Vision Quest, the children’s ministry of our church, that celebrates the growing up process of the youngsters at Spirit Life. Each year Vision Quest organizes a morning of games, prizes, treats and other activities. Children throughout the area are invited to take part in the fun.

This year, Promotion Sunday will feature demonstrations from the Piqua fire department. In addition to enjoying tours of the PFD truck, games and contests will include tug of war and slip ‘n’ slide. We will also have face painting, cotton candy and snow cones.
