WILMINGTON, Calif.—First Baptist Church hosted a time of singing with a meal afterward for Regular Baptist churches in California.

“We thought maybe 50 people would come because attendance has been low at the sings lately,” Chantelle Graham of First Baptist Church, “but we were pleasantly surprised because 86 people came to the sing.” All of the songs focused on the theme “The Love of God.” In addition to the corporate singing, groups from four churches presented songs: Bethel Baptist in Torrance, First Baptist of Walteria in Torrance, South Vermont Avenue Baptist in Gardena, and Bible Baptist in Santa Monica.

“It was after 10:00 pm when the last group of people left because they really enjoyed the fellowship.”
