Christian Bands Returning To GAR Park
Contemporary Christian bands and soloists will once again fill GAR Park with uplifting music and praise when New Life Christian Assembly of God presents "Hillstock 2017."
"Hillstock is a celebration of praise and evangelistic music and arts designed to lift up and promote the lordship of Jesus Christ in private and public settings," said New Life Pastor Rick Amendola.
The celebration begins June 28 at 7 p.m. at New Life Christian Assembly, 966 Main St, with a worship concert featuring the New Life Worship Team, led by Stacie Amendola-Johnson and various singers and musicians from the church.

There will be many special activities including face painting, pony rides, dunk tank, snow cones, popcorn, hot dogs, refreshments, and a high striker, all for free.
