ForGR Community Picnic


Sunday, July 28 @ 12:30p - 3:30p
Heartside Park, Grand Rapids, MI

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.

Colossians 3:14 (NLT)


Join us at Heartside Park in downtown Grand Rapids for a community-wide event! The Center Church and Frontline Church are teaming together to host a free cookout lunch as a way to show God’s love and reveal His Kingdom in a tangible way to the Heartside community. We’ll be bringing in bounce houses, face-painting, kids carnival games, music, prizes, bingo, yard games and more as a way to connect with and engage the community!

Why is this event called ForGR? When you say you are For GR, you're saying you are FOR the PEOPLE of the city of Grand Rapids. Too often, the church is known for what (and who) it’s against. This picnic aims to change that!

This event is a celebration of everything good in Grand Rapids, specifically the people that call GR home! As we come together around a meal and activities, we hope to be able to see past our differences and embrace one another through a common cause of Kingdom community. We are all ForGR!

This is an open-invitation event, so feel free to invite friends and family!

We are also in need of volunteers, so sign up to volunteer today!
