Christian Community Council slates 'A Christian Festival' Oct. 2
The second annual Christian Festival, formerly called the Gospel Festival,
will be held in Collins Street Park, Stein Highway, Seaford, on Saturday,
The festival will include food, inspirational speakers and entertainment
which will include a Gospel concert by recording artists, "By Dezign."
It will begin at noon and run until dusk.
Allan Holloway is in charge of the event this year. This is the first
of many activities and community ministries the group hopes to organize
in the future.
"Members of this council believe that Christians need to leave the
safety and comfort of their churches to collectively influence our
communities as Christ taught us to do," Holloway said."
The mission statement for CCC is: "To increase spiritual awareness
and unity by: developing spiritual outreach programs designed to bring
souls to Christ and to create a partnership between the churches,
and to provide a network to create church-community projects, particularly
those addressing youth, senior, and family concerns."
For further information about CCC, to assist at the festival, to reserve
a booth, or to offer a donation, call Holloway at 628-3240.
