Family event at Second Baptist Church

Second Baptist Church invites families to “Babylon: Daniel’s Courage in Captivity.” This summer family event will be 6-8 p.m., until Aug. 2.

Families will step back in time at Babylon, exploring Daniel’s adventures as a captive in a foreign land. Kids and adults will participate in a memorable Bible-times marketplace, sing, play teamwork building games, share Bible times snacks, visit Daniel and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God sightings.

Each day concludes at Celebration, a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.

Kids and adults at Babylon will join more than a million participants reaching out to needy kids through a hands-on mission project called Operation Kid-to-Kid, in which families will raise money for mosquito nets to combat malaria.

For more information call 409-735-8156.
