Blue in the Zoo
September 22 (5:30-7:30 p.m.)
For the fourth year in a row, Greenville Baptist Association will express our love and appreciation to law enforcement personnel and their families with a free evening at the zoo. Law enforcement officers and their families in your congregation and community are our guests of honor at this event. There will be fun, food, entertainment, GREAT DOOR PRIZES, and animals!
Your church can participate! We are looking for GBA churches to host stations during this event. For a list of the stations available, contact Anna Richardson at [email protected] or 864.242.4330. We are also in need of parking lot greeters and registration personnel. Volunteers must be 16 years of age.
Invite law enforcement officers and their families to attend! A downloadable flyer will be available soon for your church to print and distribute to law enforcement officers as an invitation. Tickets must be picked up from their commanding officers. Employees outside Greenville County (Anderson, Easley, Laurens, Spartanburg, ect.) please contact the GBA Office for tickets.
Pray for this event! Pray for the law enforcement personnel and their families who will attend. Pray for the churches/volunteers who will assist in making this event a success. Pray that we will be the hands and feet of Jesus to these law enforcement officers as we show them our appreciation and support for the work they do for our communities.
