You’re invited to the biggest party Grace Church has ever thrown. A one-night-only event for the whole Bath Campus family to come together. On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s going to be an 11.

But what makes this party so great? I’m glad you asked.

  • Got a competitive streak? For you, we brought in pedal cart racing, half court shot for prizes, and bingo.
  • Got kids? Think princesses, the coolest inflatables on planet earth, and a very special surprise guest.
  • Came with your friends? Jump into the epic photo scavenger hunt to win PRIZES.
  • Need a minute away from the crowd? Think puppies. Seriously.
  • Hungry? Concessions available.
  • Selfie? Specialty photo booths.

Also, we can neither confirm nor deny the rumor that Pastor Jeff will be there giving people tattoos.

Ok, now that you know what it’s all about, here are all things you should get your detail-oriented people on the phone for so you show up at the right place.

February 22, 2019
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
at the John S. Knight Center


The big event is for EVERYONE!
This is an open house event. Come when you can and leave when you want. You probably won’t ever want to leave because of all the fun you’ll be having.
Concessions will be available for purchase at the event. We encourage you to make a night of it and grab a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants either before or after the event.
