We have received a tremendous amount of help and counsel from the Toledo Area American Baptist Association (known affectionately as "TAABA").  Though we are not members, we are affiliated with TAABA.  Over 180 members of our sister churches gathered for the TAABA Annual Picnic on June 10, 2012 at Side Cut Metropark in Maumee.  The festivities began at 2 PM.  It was an awesome time of Fellowship, Food, and Fun. We were blessed to have Rev. Jane Gibbons from the state office of the American Baptist Churches of Ohio (ABC/Ohio) and Dr. Marva Hughes, President of ABC/Ohio in attendance. This was an outstanding event!  Pastor Truett Fogle gave an informative reflection on his trip to Mexico in addition to the greetings from Rev. Gibbons and Dr. Hughes.  Whispering Winds Church was recognized for having 75% of our average Sunday attendance at the picnic. Enjoy a video of the day's events:
