The Carroll County Fair Board has designated Saturday, June 12, as a faith-based day at the Fair.

“The day is called ‘Crosstimes,’” program coordinator Melanie Stewart said. Stewart, also a fair board member, said the day will feature faith-based music, entertainment and door prize giveaways.

“There will be Christian music starting at 4 p.m. and going on through the evening,” Stewart said. “This is the first year we’ve ever tried to have a faith-based day at the fair. We’re taking our first steps this year. We’ve got a lot of ideas and we’re hoping to expand on it in the years to come.”

Several area churches have expressed an interest in being involved in “Crosstimes,” Stewart said.

A full lineup of musicians will be performing on the entertainment stage during the day. The Curley Stangle Gospel’ers will entertain from 4-5 p.m.

The Carrollton First Baptist Church Band will play from 5-6 p.m.

The Mt. Herman Church Crew will take the stage from 6-7 p.m.

Not Ashamed from Worthville Baptist will perform from 7-8 p.m.

In a break from Christian music, Jay Montgomery, Youth Minister at Carrollton First Baptist Church, will present a Strength Ministry from 8-8:30 p.m.

St. John’s Catholic Church will be onstage from 8:30-9:30 p.m.

The Sum Tymers will perform from 10-11 p.m.

The Pentecostals of Carrollton will take the stage at 11 p.m.

For every ticket sold on Saturday, Stewart said, the Carroll County Fair Board will make a $1 donation to the new, Carroll County chapter of Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
