Our associational family of churches brings the Baby Comfort Station and several other ministries to the Allegany County Fair, July 14-22, the Garrett County Fair, July 29-August 5, and to the Autumn Glory Festival, October 14.
THE BABY COMFORT STATION PROVIDES A CLEAN, SAFE AREA FOR FAMILIES TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR BABIES’ NEEDS TO BE CHANGED AND/OR FED. WE HAVE TWO STATIONS(one 18′ x 27′, one 24′ x 32′) to meet different space requirements. These tents are available to any of our WBA churches for evangelistic endeavors. We encourage our churches to pray about engaging their local festivals with this tool.
Other ministries we get to do at the two fairs are:
- Leading the Allegany County Fair Vespers Service
- Providing dinner and a worship service for the Reithoffer Shows workers at both fairs
- Our Associational Missionary serving as Chaplain at both fairs
- Leading Senior Citizens’ Day activities at the Garrett County Fair
- Helping with the Miss Allegany County Farm Bureau contest.
- At Autumn Glory, we provide the Baby Comfort Station, a Children’s Activity Area, and help with the Grand Feature Parade. Our Associational Missionary helps announce the parade.
***IF YOU SENSE THE LORD LEADING YOU TO BE INVOLVED IN ANY OF THESE FAIR AND FESTIVAL MINISTRIES, PLEASE CONTACT US. IF YOU CAN’T BE WITH US ON-SITE, WOULD YOU, PLEASE, BE INVOLVED THROUGH YOUR PRAYERS? THANK YOU!***
