Fishing

OBIC has in the past offered an awesome fishing club for kids of all ages every Tuesday night from 6-8pm. The club is currently “on hold” until we find individuals interested in leading. Anyone who has a heart for helping kids learn to fish can help lead this club. We would need help rigging the rods for everyone before hand, as well as help with the kids while fishing.

If you have any interest in helping us out in these ways please contact David at 252-423-1434 or david@obicministries.org
