Bethany Baptist Church is serving the QC community again on Saturday, September 13 from 5 pm to 8 pm with its sixth annual “Back 2 School Bash”!

This is a free, family fun event designed to share God’s love, no strings attached.  We will offer “carnival style food” (corn dogs, nachos, popcorn, etc.), kid- and youth- friendly games, a giant inflatable slide, obstacle course, and bounce house, along with prizes, music and face-painting, all free of charge.

The evening will conclude with a special show, presented by Puckett Family Magic Illusionists.  The Puckett family are based in Portland, OR, but perform all across the US.  Their website is www.pucketfamilymagic.com. They present a positive message of love, peace, and forgiveness with world-class quality illusions.  Visitors will not be disappointed!

At Bethany, we are committed to “Loving God, Growing Together, and Serving the World”, which is why we bring this event to our community year after year.  We hope to give families the opportunity to unwind and “cut loose” during the early weeks of a challenging school year.

This is a FREE, fun-filled event for the whole family on Saturday, September 13, from 5-8 p.m. at Bethany Baptist Church, 700 35th Avenue Place, Moline.  We hope to see you there!
