Worship Festival 2010


On July 31 our church took part in the worship festival, organized by the Lutheran Church "Cross and Crown". Time of Festival from 1 pm to 8 pm was shared among independent music groups and worship teams from local churches. The groups performed songs of praise, modern and traditional hymns.
 
The goal of the festival was the glorification of the Lord in the unity of churches, holiday and gospel sharing for invited people and raising funds for the "Hope" ministry. In preparation for the festival a significant number of invitation flyers were distributed.  The fund-raising took place for the “Hope” ministry for the homeless and unemployed. Every Saturday the church serves about 50-70 people with a hot breakfast, lunch, clothing, paperwork and the word of God in worship.
 
In the intervals of performances a lottery was held in which prizes were distributed: CDs, dishes, sets of toys and much more.
 
For kids volleyball net was strung, jumping house was inflated,  their faces were painted, children's stories were read.
 
Attendees could buy at a reasonable price hot dogs, burgers, sweets and soft drinks.
 
During its turn to perform our church sang several songs in English and Russian languages and conducted a prayer. Dance worship group has presented modern dances and dances with flags.
 
It is worth making a remark that the local churches of various denominations together in unity praised the Lord. In preparation for the festival, ministers gathered together for prayer. The Ark Church already works together with the Lutheran Church "Cross and Crown" in the ministry of" Hope".  We hope that this cooperation will be further developed in various areas of ministry.
