New Jerusalem Baptist Church is hosting its annual community picnic. It will include food and plenty of activities for the entire family but coordinators say it will also highlight togetherness.
"It's a special time because it brings the community together. Our young people. Our old people. Blacks, whites and browns together and we have a chance to celebrate together this time of the year," says Pastor Angus Thompson.
The celebration will also include a giveaway of about 200 pairs of tennis shoes to school children. New Jerusalem's Community Picnic is tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the church parking lot on Borton Street.
This is the sixth year the church has held this event.
