When you give your life to Christ you give up precious little and gain so very much. You enter into a whole new world of opportunity, peace, love and joy. You gain millions of brothers and sisters all united by their faith in Jesus. Living the Christian life is the most exciting choice you could make. The family at Third Baptist Church would like to share some of that excitement with you.

The 2010 Church Picnic

The family of Third Baptist Church gathered together for the annual picnic at Colt State Park in Bristol, RI.


The park added this great new pavilion and we got to use it this year. Plenty of shade for everyone.

What's a church picnic without some face painting?

Foot ball!

This year the sport of choice was passing the funny looking football.

Shooting hoops

There were loads of games for the kids like this shooting hoops game.

What could be more fun on a hot day than a water balloon toss?

Snow cones

The snow cone assembly line was busy as the temperature climbed into the humid 80s.

Motorcycle rides

If you felt really daring you could grab a quick ride on the back of a motorcycle.

Kids of all sizes sat and waited for the magic show to begin.

God keeps us together

Pastor Burt used some magician's tricks to illustrate how God works in our lives and entertain the kids.

Steve sings

Steve sang just before Pastor Burt brought the Word.

The dog

Yes. The dog is actually smiling. Maybe it's because she had a great time just like everyone else. We hope you can join us for next year's picnic.
