A couple dozen kids attended a back to school bash called 'Deliverance or Nah?' It's hosted by Feel My Real Ministry and HopeTree Family Services. The program encourages kids to make good choices and stay above negative influences.

"We felt it very important to come together as a team and create this event where we can have speakers come and share their own testimony of how they've been delivered from whatever it is that they've been delivered from," Feel My Real Ministry CEO Natasha Harper said. "We decided to come together and put our foot down and say you know what there's a better way to live your life and it's through Jesus Christ."

Other young adults performed dances and songs to help spread the message, while Local businesses took care of the hungry stomachs.
