Open Letter to Midlothian

For the past three years Life Church has sponsored FREEDOM CELEBRATION, a family-friendly activity leading up to the Amazing firework display provided by Citizens National Bank on July 3rd each year.  From our first year with just an inflatable slide and bounce house, we witnessed the desire of Midlothian families to come together for a large scale attraction.  Each year our FREEDOM CELEBRATION grew and attracted a greater crowd. It has provided to be a great festive time in our community as we celebrate our nations freedom. It wouldn’t have been possible without the strategic partnership of our vendors, the Midlothian School District, the Midlothian Police Department, the hundreds of volunteers from Life Church, and of course CNB’s firework show.

Maybe you are asking, where is Life Church this July 3rd? And where are all the great attractions, competitions and events? I’m glad you asked. Each year we spend time praying and seeking God’s will on the best investment of our time and resources. After weeks of prayer it seemed the more people on our staff and leadership team that we talked to, the more we were in agreement about a change to this summer’s event. After much prayer and planning, we want you to invite you and your family to join Life Church for the biggest end-of-summer blow out ever at our Back 2 School Bash!

After speaking with Dr Stewart, MISD Superintendent, and gaining the support of Boyce Whatley, Midlothian Mayor – we are moving full steam ahead. On Saturday, August 13th we are planning a 6 hour long Back 2 School Bash at the Midlothian Panther Football Stadium.  Check out everything that is going to be happening:

  • Largest Inflatable Water Slide in Texas with 150ft of sliding distance
  • 2 Story Obstacle Course
  • 2 Euro Bungees
  • 24ft Rock Climbing Wall
  • 30 ft Dry Slide
  • 2 Obstacle Courses
  • Bounce Houses
  • Batting Cage
  • Games & Competitions
We’ve also been granted permission from the Texas Rangers to host a city-wide tailgate party and view the Rangers game that afternoon in a public viewing.  Does that sound like fun yet? Allow me to let you in on one more secret that really has all of us pretty excited – we are also teaming up to provide free hair cuts, immunizations, health screenings so that all of our kids are ready to get back to school.
Here is the deal, we are working hard to make this the best back to school year ever so we are asking for your support in gathering school supplies and bringing them with you on August 13th.  We will have large collection bins for the school supplies.  All of the school supplies that you bring to the Back 2 School Bash will be given to Manna House, our local food and service organization to distribute to students in need of school supplies. You’re going to hear a lot more about the Back 2 School Bash and you may even want to volunteer to help with your time or support this event financially.  For more information email us at
Praying for you to have a great summer!
