Children’s Field Trip to Nada, March 25
Finding Hope: A Field Trip of Faith continues through March 21. Children are learning about how CBF is working with the 20 poorest counties in the United States and are studying Bible stories about helping others on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. To wrap-up our Field Trip of Faith we will be taking a field trip to the beautiful mountains of Nada, Kentucky to see the work first hand and meet missionary Paula Settle. After morning worship we will eat a sandwich lunch in fellowship hall then depart for Nada. We will meet Paula Settle at 3:00 then join the Nada Baptist Mission for Sunday School  at 3:15 and worship at 4:00. At around 5:30 we will have pizza at the famous Miguel’s Pizza, then head back to Danville. We will arrive back in Danville around 9:00 p.m. Please sign up by Sunday, March 18 so we can arrange transportation.
