By the way for Apr. 4
The First Baptist Church of Bristol on Saturday, April 6, will host a fun fundraiser for the Village2Village Project in Uganda. Slated to begin at 5:30 p.m., the event will include a shepherd’s pie supper and the music of the “Old Bones” Country and Gospel singers. Admission is $10 for adults $5 for those aged 6-11, and kids under 5 get in for free. All proceeds will benefit V2V, which helps children to get a schooling, medicines, food and much more. This mission has it’s roots right here in Bristol. It started because the people of First Baptist Church cared and wanted to help those in need a half a world away.
