Coshocton Baptist’s planning Winterfest for the community

| January 23, 2017

COSHOCTON – Coshocton Baptist Church is inviting the public to come enjoy a winter wonderland.

The church’s first Winterfest for families will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28 at the church located at 1631 Denman Ave.

The church will be decorated with a winter theme and there will be music, face painting, games and crafts for all ages. Door prizes for men, women and children will be drawn every 15 minutes for each category. The church will have soup, hot dogs, chips, cookies and hot and cold beverages for everyone attending.

The evening will feature princesses, a super hero and a storybook character that portraits can be taken with. The portraits will be taken by a professional photographer and will be free of charge. Everything at the event is free and donations to help cover costs will not be asked for.

“Different people have thrown in money to help make this happen,” said Robin Walters, whose husband Mike is the associate pastor at Coshocton Baptist Church. “The merchants have been great too with their donations for door prizes.”

The church decided it wanted to give the community somewhere to come for a few hours with their family to just have some fun and relax.

“Like most churches we have gotten smaller and we wanted to do something to meet with the community,” Robin said. “We have a lot of fun and printed up a flyers to tell people about our church and the things we do like adult game night, movie night, our chili cook-off and our women’s and men’s nights out.”

For more information on this event, call the church at 740-622-9803.

“The whole church has been involved in this and everything is really starting to come together,” Robin said. “A lot of people jumped in so we could do something big for the community.”
