Raleigh Baptist Association: State Fair Chaplaincy
Every year the Fair comes to Raleigh in October, and children and adults alike love walking around the fairgrounds eating cotton candy, tossing rings in an attempt to win a gigantic stuffed animal, and riding the Tilt-a-Whirl for the thrill of the rush. Most times the fair workers are faceless individuals who serve us and we can spend hours at the fair never really seeing them. TCC, in partnership with the Raleigh Baptist Association, desires to serve these fair workers as chaplains by praying with them and counseling them if they so desire. Chaplains serve a 4 hour shift at the fair, and this opportunity is open to all churches who are a part of the Raleigh Baptist Association. If you are interested in serving as a chaplain, please contact Julie Williams.
