Yellow Creek Baptist Church holds Patriotic Celebration and Fireworks event

Yellow Creek Baptist ChurchCumberland City, TN – On Sunday evening, July 2nd, 2017, Yellow Creek Baptist Church held their annual Patriotic Celebration and Fireworks.

“We have been doing this for seven years now. We always bring in a choir, a band and someone to come sing. Then we give everyone a opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and savior,” said Brother Phillip Chambers, Senior Pastor.

The event kicked off at 6:00pm with fellowship, dinner, and singing with their special guest vocalist Steve Ladd. Ladd was at the event last year and the church fell in love with him.

“We cooked 143lbs of pork butts, 50lbs of chicken. We ran out. We went to Shiloh BBQ and bought everything they had left and ran out. We then went to cooking hotdogs. I promise you next year we are going to double the amount of BBQ that we fix so that way everybody can have something to eat,” Chambers stated.

At about 7:30pm, there were 729 people at the church. By the time the fireworks show began, there was estimated to be well over a 1,000 people at the event.

In the past several years, people inside the church did the fireworks but that did not work out this year. Yellow Creek was able to contract with the same company that does the Tennessee Titan fireworks, the Nashville Sounds fireworks and the Tennessee Vols fireworks.

“We talked to him about what we were doing here. For the exact same dollar about that we spent on fireworks last year, their doing the show for us this year. The man is a super nice Christian man and I’m very thankful for how God worked all this out,” commented Chambers.

The fireworks this year were eight times bigger than anything that they have ever used here at Yellow Creek. Everyone was really excited about the fireworks show and seem to really enjoy the fireworks display.

“We are thankful that everything went smoothly. We really appreciate everybody coming out tonight,” said Chambers.
