The Big Tent Event

Two TentsThe latest event was even bigger and better than the inaugural celebration of 2009!

The event gave the people of the Blackwater Valley region a window into the Christian faith in a non threatening environment and a venue to pray for soldiers on operations and their families and to take part in a variety of activities for all ages.
