A Beautiful Picnic!

We praise God for a beautiful day and perfect weather for our annual cookout!  But, it was much more than just a cookout.  We enjoyed the company of dear friends who've been with us for years, new listeners, and even some who just saw the sign and drove in! We see this event as blessing our listeners but also in many ways, an outreach to the community. The bounce houses, cornhole, chippo golf game, and Donna Leland’s paint crafts were all big hits…and not just for the kids! And we even had a suprise visit from Dave Zanotti of The Public Square!

We want to thank our excellent volunteers who helped serve approximately 400 guests... grilling meat, serving food, attending the tables and even helping to clean up everything until the end!  It was indeed a blessing for all ages, thank you for coming, and we hope to see you at the next one!

Fall Festivals almost here!

Next up for the WBNH team will be not one, but two great festivals here in Tazewell county.  The 50th Annual Pekin Marigold Festival takes place in Mineral Springs Park THIS week, September 8th to 11th.  We invite you to stop by and see us Saturday and Sunday in the Community Spotlight display area, near the Arts In The Park.  We also look forward to the festival parade, as we’ll step off with other parade participants at 10:00am Saturday.

We also invite you to join the fun at the Morton Pumpkin Festival on September 14 – 17.  Again this year, we will have our display set up in the Festival Family Fun Patch each day so stop by and say “Hi!” and we'll have lots of great giveaways, too!  We’ll also be in the parade which steps off at 10:30am on Saturday, September 17 and you could catch a soft baseball!

I Am They in Concert October 6

We have good news! Because of our generous sponsors, we are able to underwrite the cost of the IAT concert and make it free! If you've already purchased tickets, you will be refunded, but you still need to reserve your free tickets here.

I Am They is a pop-acoustic worship group with a bright, contemporary sound appealing to all ages. And next month, Bethany Baptist Church will be the beautiful venue as WBNH welcomes I Am They in concert with special guests Jonathan Traylor and Chase & Co. on Thursday, October 6 @ 7pm.  We hope you can join us for this wonderful night of worship!


All for the King,
