University of the Cumberlands Welcomes the CORE of Nashville First Baptist Church

 


The Chapel Choir from First Baptist Church of Nashville, Tn., performs at University of the Cumberlands

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky.—Members of the Chapel Choir of the First Baptist Church of Nashville, Tenn., spent Tuesday, June 9, through Friday, June 12, in Whitley County, working with Appalachian Ministries, a local ministry branch of University of the Cumberlands’ Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM).

While in Whitley County, the group ministered in a variety of ways. The choir performed concerts at Williamsburg Nursing Home, Green Street Church of God, in Williamsburg, and at University of the Cumberlands. Approximately half the group conducted a Vacation Bible School at Corbin Manor Apartments in Corbin, and the other half canvassed the community of Canadatown, a rural area where Appalachian Ministries hopes a church will be planted in the future. Unfortunately, a block party in Canadatown, planned for Friday evening, was cancelled due to inclement weather.
