Youth Dessert Auction – 5/18/19:  Fountain Park Church Youth Group hosted their annual Dinner & Dessert Action.  Once again it was well attended and a great meal was served with class  by the youth.  After the meal the auction began.  A total of nine desserts made by church members were auctioned off.  Every one of them were works of art and satisfied everybody’s sweet tooth and then some.  The auction was a success and all proceeds goes towards the youth annual summer mission trip.

Talent Show – 5/4/19:  After being absent for a number of years, Fountain Park Church brought back our Talent Show.  It was a big success with eleven acts ranging from very talented to very silly.  Everyone enjoyed a meal prior to the show.  During the show there was plenty of audience participation with sing along and pop quizzes along with some embellished stories about the performers.  It was a fun night for all and we hope to bring it back as an annual event.

Salvation Ride (July 7, 2018):  The Ride is much more than a fun day on two wheels: every dollar raised and each mile biked provides critical support for those in need through the Salvation Army that goes directly to those in Sheboygan County.

This year marked the 5th annual “Ride” (not a race).   There are five routes: 10, 25, 50, 62.5 and 100 miles.  There are well-stocked Rest Stops providing snacks and refreshments along with rest rooms along each route.

John & Vicki Winter participated in The Ride again this year. With your help and a few other outside donations, we raised a combined total of $1,065!  You made us the #2 top private fund raiser.  This year there was a total of 418 riders. Next year’s Ride will be on July 6, 2019 – rain or shine.  John & Vicki really look forward to having more members from our church family join in The Ride.
