We are inviting the Blackshear Place Baptist Church family to be a part of a milestone in our church history with a special day of events and activities for the whole family.

Then we will have free food from our own food truck park and activities for all ages in our outdoor area, including a giant sandbox, inflatable games, and a covered area to relax and fellowship. We want you to come join us for this memorable day in the life of our church!
