Upcoming Events

 
 
First Baptist Church Indian Trail will be conducting Judgement House, Wednesday, October 22 through Saturday, October 25, 2014.  This year, we will premiere the script "59 Minutes".  Judgement House in a great alternative to the Halloween haunted house.  We take groups of 30 people every 10 minutes and lead them through a series of 8 rooms, following the lives of four main characters.  The choices those individuals make determine their enternal destiny as shown in the drama.
 
Judgement House is true to life, however, we do not get graphic or sensational in an attempt to scare people.  Our production is intended to creatively present the Gospel and let men, women, boys and girls choose for themselves whom they will serve.  There is an invitation at the end.  Over the years, thousands of people have attended Judgement House with hundreds making a first time profession of faith.
 
We are taking reservations for groups.  There is a suggested donation of $3.00 per person to help offset the expense of the production.  I ask that you prayerfully consider making Judgement House a part of your fall schedule.  This is a great outing for youth groups and young adults.  We recommend that participants be at least 10 years old.  We will forward to you any information on participants who make a decision.
 
If you have questions or want to make a reservation, please call Julie at 704-893-2640, Monday-Thursday 8 am-5 pm or Friday 8 am-1 pm.
 
I hope to see you and your group this year!
