Church hosts 'Family Night' at Roy Rogers

The First Pentecostal Assembly of God will host a "Family Night" at Roy Rogers Restaurant, 1730 Massey Boulevard in Hagerstown, tonight from 5 to 8 p.m.

The fundraiser will help support the church's special services. The community outreach program at First Pentecostal Assembly of God is trying to raise money to bring in Sam Fidell to speak on the Word of Knowledge.

Roy Rogers will donate 25 percent of the proceeds from the fundraiser to the church. The donation is based on the number of guests that go to the restaurant the night of the fundraiser.
