Second annual ‘Stomp the Yard’ to be held July 26 at Houston Avery Park

By By Adrienne McKenzie
Pastor Bernard Bishop Ministries and Deliverance Ministry of Jesus Christ, Inc., are prepping for the second annual “Stomp the Yard” event.
Like last year’s event, there will be several gospel concerts along with many activities including a waterslide, dunking booth and spacewalkers.
Pastor Bernard Bishop said the ministry chose to host “Stomp the Yard” again because it was such a success last year.
One thing that makes this year’s event different from last year’s is a $500 scholarship that will be provided to one high school senior.
Bishop said he hopes that the $500 scholarship will be able to help one student with at least their college books for a semester. There are different sponsors from businesses and churches throughout the area who have provided funding for the scholarship.
The “Giving Back Through God” scholarship program is a 500-word essay contest in which the winner is awarded the $500 scholarship.
Those interested in the scholarship should answer the following question in a 500-word essay: “What can you give back to the community in your vocation through God?”
Requirements for being considered for the contest include:
The original deadline of July 12 for those interested in the scholarship has been bumped to July 22.
Felicia Bishop said those in charge of “Stomp the Yard” are appreciative of the communities help.
Essays can be sent to 455 Kenneth Road, Atmore, AL, 36502.
