Horton Baptist Hosts Singles’ Event

On November 10th, Horton Baptist Church of Waverly, IA hosted their first IARBC Singles’ Event! There was an encouraging turnout of 13 singles from around the state, even on a cold night. The event began at approximately 2:00pm with games and refreshments in the parsonage basement. After a few hours of activity, Pastor Stephen share a brief devotional from 1 Thessalonians 5 on prayer.  After the devotional, the singles enjoyed a BBQ dinner provided and served by several members of HBC. After supper, the “main event,” pumpkin carving, was held in the parsonage garage. The individuals who participated demonstrated a great deal of skill and creativity! The pumpkins were judged by our “independent” judges and several awards/prizes were given out. After a little clean-up the group went back inside for a few more games. The crowd slowly dissipated with the last individuals leaving at around 8:00pm. It was a wonderful time! Many thanks to all who attended, served, and provided for this event. As mentioned, this was HBC’s first experience hosting a singles’ event, but it was a very positive one! Hopefully HBC will have the opportunity to host again in the future and other churches will step up and participate in this needed ministry as well!
