THE VILLAGES, Fla.—Tri County Baptist Church hosts three seasonal events each year to reach out to ladies in the church’s community. Recently the church hosted its Spring Fling, the largest of the seasonal events, with about 300 ladies attending each year.
Spring Fling was “truly memorable,” the church says. “The speakers were spiritually inspiring [and] the entertainment was hilarious.” Lasting from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the event included a guest speaker, special music, a chocolate break, a fashion show, door prizes, box lunches, and skits.
Each year “the speaker’s second message closes with a challenge to receive Christ as Savior,” says Juanita Purcell, who coleads the seasonal events. “There are always many who respond, giving us an opportunity for follow-up.” Sixteen women accepted Christ as their Savior.
