Children meet Bible characters at FBC Gordocomment (0)
March 19, 2009
About 200 children met Jesus at First Baptist Church, Gordo, on Feb. 22.
The first- through sixth-graders also met Queen Esther, Jonah, Mary, Martha and other Bible characters brought to life with costumes and dramatization at Tales of the Bible, a children’s event sponsored by Pickens Baptist Association’s Woman’s Missionary Union.
Shelley Lawrence, a member of First, Gordo, led a time of praise and worship. At the conclusion of the event, an invitation was given by Pastor David Singleton and church member Garry Lawrence, who played Jesus.
The children in attendance also were encouraged to bring nonperishable food items for the local Baptist center’s food pantry.
Other Pickens Association churches that helped with the event were First Baptist, Aliceville, and Carrollton Baptist.
