Unity in the Park (UP) 2012 Brings People Together
Photos by Kelly Thomas, Moment of Purpose photography.
This past Saturday in Waynesboro four area churches came together to celebrate in a local park. Oak Grove Restoration Ministries, Revolution Church, Saint James Baptist Church and Church on the Hill joined together to provide the community with a wonderful day of activities for all ages.
There were live bands, testimonies and the dance group Relentless added a lively worship experience. Choreographed by 23 year old India Eaves, the dance group included the young and the young at heart!
I had volunteered to help and was assigned to security, but the crowd was so nice that that amounted to floating around and helping out. I blew up some balloons, picked up some litter (there wasn't much) and talked with some really fine people. It was a taste of Heaven, as people from different churches and different backgrounds shared their life in Christ. You could see Imago Dei all around.
A nice picnic lunch was provided, and food for the spirit was offered as well. Pastor Chuck Balsamo shared his testimony and shared clearly how G-d has changed his life. That same Spirit I had seen in the little church in Santa Cruz, Bolivia filled that city park. Lives were changed as people turned to the Lord.
