Annual Church Picnic — September 10, 2017

Church Picnic 3The Annual Church Picnic will be held following the worship service on Sept. 10, this year at Dunn State Park. Come enjoy the water through swimming, kayaking, or hiking around the lake! We’ll have games and music, too. 

Bring your own beach or lawn chairs, and if you have an easy-up 10 x 10 tent to bring, we’d welcome that, too! Pot luck items to share include a hot or cold entree, a side item or salad, drinks, dessert, or items for the grill (don’t forget charcoal!). All church family members and friends are welcome! Thank you all for your participation in making this happen as Bethany Baptist kicks off its new church year!
