Bison Glee Club to Lead Worship April 7th in Woodward
Oklahoma Baptist University’s Bison Glee Club, an all-male choral group, will sing at First Baptist Church in Woodward, Oklahoma, on Sunday, April 7, during the 10:45 am worship service. The community is invited to attend the performance, which is the group’s first stop on a tour of Oklahoma.
We will need to provide a place for the young men to stay the night of April 6th. There are approximately 40 young men who need a place to stay. People who either volunteer to provide a hotel room or a room in their home for the night’s stay will also need to provide a breakfast for the young man or men they are housing and get them to church the morning of April 7th. If you are interested in housing a young man or men please call the office or let Les Castor know.
