By Jade Bulecza - bio | email

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –You can buy fireworks at a church in Valdosta for a good cause.

They whistle and sizzle. This one's called the bug zapper and it's just one of the thousands of fireworks United Pentecostal Church is selling to raise money to remodel a portion of their gym.

In the last six years, they've used money from the fireworks fundraiser to build a game room and kitchen and fund outreach programs for the community.

"It's exciting to see young kids come through and say, 'mom and dad, I want this.I want this.' They go to grab and reach and it's awesome," said Kenneth Goff with the church. "It's a joy seeing the families interact. "

United Pentacostal Church is on Bemiss Road.

The fireworks are sold there from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. through July 4.
