Warren Baptist church to serve Italian dinner

The First Baptist Church of Warren invites the community to an Italian dinner prepared by Kim’s Katered Affair on Saturday, May 20, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The meal will feature fettuccine with meat marinara sauce or chicken alfredo, tossed salad, unlimited bread sticks and dessert.

During the meal, vocal performances will be provided by Sophia Smekens and friends. The group “Serenade” will provide the entertainment after the meal at 6:30 p.m., performing a wide variety of vocal and instrumental tunes.

Proceeds from free will donations collected during the meal will be used to support “Backpack Pa-looza,” a new First Baptist ministry that will provide backpacks and school supplies to 200 local children free of charge.

The Italian dinner will be held in the church’s Fellowship Hall, 727 N. Wayne St. in Warren.
