Springfield, MO (PRWEB) July 2, 2010
The Springfield, Missouri, law firm of Aaron Sachs & Associates is the presenting sponsor of the I Love America celebration, which will be held in Springfield on Sunday, July 4th. In past years, the day-long event has drawn over 100,000 people. Sachs says that “there is something there for all ages and all tastes, with almost 100 free games and activities, aerial acrobatics, an air show, food, live music, and a musically choreographed fireworks show brought to you by James River Charities. The ‘I Love America’ Celebration honours the founding of our nation and celebrates God’s faithfulness to America.” This is the sixth year Aaron Sachs’ firm has been a sponsor. The event is also sponsored by Empire Bank, KOLR 10, Price Cutter, Aire-Master, 88.3 the wind fm, Coca-Cola Ozarks, and 99 Hit fm.
Gates open at 1:00pm on Sunday, July 4th at the Springfield Underground, located at Highway 65 and Division Street in Springfield, Mo. The kids’ games, inflatables and air show begin at 2:00pm. The award winning band, “Group 1 Crew” will perform at 10:00pm, after the fireworks. This will be the largest family event of the summer and admission is free. Coverage of the event on God TV (Direct TV channel 365) will be broadcast July 5 at 9:30 PM, and again July 6 at 2:30 PM
This event traditionally attracts not only residents of Springfield but the surrounding communities including cities as far away as Joplin and Columbia. The day long festival has always attracted the largest attendance of any July 4th celebrations in the Ozarks. James River Assembly is recruiting approximately 2,500 church volunteers to help staff the event.
James River Assembly is one of the largest Assembly of God churches in America. It has been exemplary as a growing fellowship, having started with only 75 members in 1991. Average weekly attendance in 2009 ran at approximately 8,100, with over 15,000 attending Easter services. James River Assembly is located in Ozark, Missouri in Christian County –a county whose population is predicted to increase by 120,000 over the next two decades. As a result, a second church campus known as Wilson’s Creek will be opened in Greene County on Sunday, September 20th, 2009.
The Sachs family has been associated with the Assemblies of God for generations. Aaron and his wife of 20 years, Shelly, and their children Sarah and Will attend James River Assembly. Aaron’s father, Reverend William Nelson Sachs, was formerly the District Council Superintendent for the Southern Missouri District Council of the Assemblies of God and occupied this office when James River Assembly opened its doors in 1991. Aaron’s grandfather was also an Assembly of God minister. Aaron Sachs originally established the church body as a not-for-profit corporation.
