A Praise Fest, sponsored by 11 area churches, is set for Saturday, Aug. 24, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Gettysburg Rec Park Amphitheater, located off Howard Avenue.
This event will include four Christian bands, children’s activities, two messages (one in English and one in Spanish), free barbecued ribs, hot dogs and more. There will also be opportunities for sharing prayer requests and lots of fellowship and fun.
Volunteers to help with the food and welcoming people are also needed.
This is the sixth year this event has been held as a way for churches, congregations and the community to work together in bringing a greater presence of the Gospel’s Good News beyond the walls of the churches. Bring a chair or a blanket and join this community event.
If it rains, the Praise Fest will move into the Community Room in the Sterner Building at the rec park.
