NATCHEZ — A summer family event called “Babylon” will be hosted at Parkway Baptist Church through Thursday this week.

Families will step back in time at Babylon, exploring Daniel’s adventures as a captive in a foreign land. Children and adults will participate in a memorable Bible-times Marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, dig into Bible-times snacks, visit Daniel and collect Bible Memory Makers to remind them of God’s Word. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God sightings. Each day concludes at celebration — a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.
