Several hundred Christians across the Cedar Springs area dropped their denominational differences last Sunday and gathered for a time of worship together in Morley Park in the annual “United” worship service. At least 11 churches participated in the event.
A praise band made up of several churches led the worship time with uplifting songs, and several pastors gave inspiring messages about God’s love for us all, and our need to reach out and show Christ’s to love our community. The service ended with a time of people praying together for our nation and community.
“I thought it went great,” said Craig Carter, pastor at North Kent Community Church, and chair of the Cedar Springs Area Ministerial Association. “I heard a lot of good feedback. People were encouraged and said thanks for inspiring for them.” He said that there were also some people that had never attended before and told him they were glad they came.
The offering that was taken will help offset some of the costs of the event, and some of the money was also contributed to a memorial in memory of Wyatt Phillips.
After the event, attendees were welcomed to stay and take part in a free hot dog lunch.
