On Sunday, June 30, Rhema Bible Church will present Rockets Over Rhema, a special celebration for the entire family. Admission is free and the public is invited to come.
Rockets Over Rhema has been hosted on the beautiful 110-acre Rhema campus since 2003 and features one of the area’s biggest and best fireworks displays. More than 55,000 people attended Rockets Over Rhema 2012. This year marks the event’s 10-year anniversary, so you definitely don’t want to miss out!
Beginning at 5:00 p.m. visitors will enjoy a patriotic tribute in the Rhema Bible Church Auditorium as we celebrate our nation’s freedom. At 6:00 p.m., the outdoor activities start. Children will have fun bouncing and sliding on the inflatable games and getting fancied up at the face painting booths set up around the campus. The young (and young at heart) can test their ability to hang on to a mechanical bull and scale a rock-climbing wall.
If you’re more into looking than participating, stroll through the car show featuring antique vehicles, custom-built hot rods, race cars, and motorcycles.
All the excitement can make a person hungry. If your stomach starts growling, there will be plenty of concessions to enjoy. Backyard Burger will be cooking up some of the best hot dogs, hamburgers, and corn dogs you’ve ever tasted. Plus, we’ll have funnel cakes, popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones galore!
A number of great sponsors will have booths and tents set up in Rockets Over Rhema’s sponsor row. Some will offer free prizes and giveaways.
The concert will begin around 6:30 p.m. with music the entire family can enjoy from Christian artists Fireflight, Jenny Simmons, The Royal Royal, Fight the Fade, and the Synergy Worship Band. Around 10:00 p.m. the performers will finish and the pop, pop, Ba-BOOMs of the grand finale will start. Grab a blanket or lawn chair or just sit on the grass and ooh and aah at one of the largest fireworks displays in the Tulsa/Broken Arrow area.
