FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH PEKIN had our very first FAMILY FALL FESTIVAL this past Saturday Oct. 14th. We started off at 5pm sitting around the fire on hay bales roasting hot dogs followed by a short message from our new pastor, Pastor Vernon Risner. From 5:45-7pm we had our game time with a Cake Walk, Fall Photo Booth and a ton of fun with a pumpkin head bean bag toss, temporary tattoos, farmer browns grocery game, glow bowling and glow pumpkin ring toss. We feel this was a great success and look forward to doing it again next Fall and hope the community will come out and enjoy all the fun with us!
We are gearing up for the Christmas season at FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH with the Ladies Christmas Tea tickets on sale this week. The Ladies Christmas Tea is a tradition which takes place on November 14th & 16th with doors opening at 6:00 pm. It is a beautiful setting where ladies are pampered with fancy finger food, mouth-watering desserts, a superb speaker, and beautiful music to create a truly elegant evening to kick off the holiday season right. If interested in purchasing tickets, please call the office at 309-347-5965.
