ALBION – A church looking to start a congregation in Albion is paying for a fireworks show on July 5 at Bullard Park for the fourth straight year.

Members of the Tonawanda Indian Baptist Church in Basom and its sister church, High Point Community Church in Corfu, will also have games, food and music available for the community beginning at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Tonawanda and High Point members are running a park ministry in the village this summer and the churches are working on securing a spot for church services in Albion, said Robert Dean, church pastor.

“We’re just trying to be a blessing to the community,” he said today. “We’re not looking for any accolades.”

Dean said he welcomes volunteers and donations to help put on the July 5 event. For more information, call Dean at 716-812-8330.
