This impromptu comedy group is part of Comedy Sportz in the Quad Cities and will be at Open Bible Fellowship to entertain and help raise money for a missions trip to Tanzania. The event is absolutely free but we ask that you come hungry!


We will have brats, hotdogs, walking tacos and popcorn as well as a variety of sweets for sale in our concessions. There will also be a silent auction for some delicious baked goods created by some of our best cooks.  We promise that it will be an evening of fun, great food and lots of fellowship.


The money raised will go to fund our Tanzania missions team going in September to work alongside a missionary couple that OBF supports. Scott and Cassie Bostick are under Avant Ministries and are in process of drilling a water well and planting a church as they work with one of the major national church denominations in Tanzania. Our team is going to support them as their first U.S. team since their arrival in country.
