Worship in the Park was a special day not just in the life of Christ’s Church, but “The Church” in the Souhegan Valley. Hundreds gathered together on a beautiful Sunday morning at Keyes Field in Milford to worship in unity, lifting high the name of Jesus and interceding for the community (see pics below). Other participating congregations from Amherst, Milford and New Boston included the Village Bible Church, River of Life, The Bridge, Light of the World, Chestnut Hill Chapel, and the Gathering Place. It was also great to have visitors from other churches in attendance as well those not-affiliated with a church who were curious about what was going on.
Several pastors led in prayer and exhortation with a focus on seeking the “welfare of the city,” according to Jeremiah 29:7; a powerful time of worship in song was led by a multi-church praise band; testimony was shared about God’s power to deliver from addiction and despair; and Pastor Mike Sacco (Village Bible Church) brought a challenging sermon to consider what matters most in life. An offering of $2815 was also collected for SHARE to help those in need! Praise God for the move of His Spirit to bring about such a wonderful event! May this be one of many Worship in the Park gatherings to come. Please continue to pray that the vision to “seek the welfare of the city” will be put into action individually and collectively through the lives of Jesus’ followers in the Souhegan Valley.
