From Sabbath School Picnics to Community Cookouts

Crooked Creek Baptist Church has been doing picnics well for more than a century, and so it is no wonder that our picnics continue to be so popular with present members, former members, invited guests, and anyone else who joins us. Based on the clothing worn, the photo above was probably taken sometime between 1890-1910. We've been here for a long time, and we've constantly reinvented ourselves. But from what we can figure out from really old written and even photographic accounts, we've always been welcoming, and we've always done food well. We're open to change in lots of areas, but we also preserve our traditions when they've stood the test of time.

We hope you'll join us at our next such event. We have a community cookout planned for February 28th, 2018, starting at 11:30am. It won't look anything like the photo above...but you should definitely click it and take a closer look!
