2018 Singing School to be hosted by Old School

Old School will host the singing school that has been held at the Grace Primitive Baptist Church for the past several years. We, at Old School, are grateful to the good folks at Grace for allowing us this opportunity. Lord willing, Old School will host the singing school this year (2018) and then Grace will host it in 2019, and then Old School will host it in 2020, and so on.

Brother Ron and Sister Carolia Johnson, and their family, have graciously agreed to teach this year’s school. The plan is to run it just as it has always been. The school officially begins Monday, June 18 and ends on Friday, June, 22, but, as most everyone knows who has attended the school, it unofficially begins Sunday night.  We would love to have as many who can to come worship with us Sunday morning.

We intend for as many as can to stay on the premise. As has been the custom, sisters will sleep in the sanctuary and brothers will sleep in the fellowship hall. We will not be able to accommodate any camper trailers or RV’s, but we will have enough shower facilities to serve all who stay on the premise. Some mattresses will be available, but it would be advisable to bring a twin size air mattress and your own bedding. Children age 12 or below must have an adult chaperone.

There are several hotels/motels nearby in Arlington and Mansfield. The hotels in Mansfield are located clustered together and are about seven miles from the church house. Here are some of them:

The KOA campground is about 7-8 miles from the church house, and they have graciously agreed to give campers a discount if they mention that they are attending the singing school at Old School in Kennedale.
