Kingdom Reality Ministries of Union City is gearing up for its fifth annual Harvest Festival scheduled for Oct. 27.

The fall event is free and open to the public.

Pastor BJ Arnett said the festival falls into line with their mission as a church and was the idea of her husband, Apostle Camy Arnett.

“It is a part of our community initiative,” she said. “When we first moved into the area, we had the concept of making sure we dove head first into our new community.”

The festival will feature activities for the entire family including a children’s area, dance and singing contests, face painting and giveaways.

Live music will also be a key feature.

“Guest artists will be on stage all day, kind of like a mini-concert,” Arnett said.

Kingdom Reality’s campus is at 6502 Gresham St. in Union City, a space that Arnett said looks completely different from when it was first acquired.

The Union City location marks the ministry’s third location change, with past locations in DeKalb County and Buckhead.

A crucial component of the church is the city center, a space reserved specifically for community involvement.

The Harvest Festival harnesses the same spirit.

“We host all kinds of different events at the city center and we have our community initiatives where we have family fun fest several times a year, feed the homeless and a strong youth portion,” said Arnett.

She said the giveaways at the festival were a prelude for their annual Christmas toy drive where the church typically gives away more than 3,000 gifts for children and families in need.

Arnett encouraged the community to attend the festival.

“There is no cost,” she said. “It will be lots of fun, lots of activities and free giveaways. It will be a Saturday that will just allow you to relax and have fun. No pressure.”
