Video: Union Co. Churches Celebrate Faith, Freedom
UNION COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — Several Union County churches are celebrating both their faith and freedom this weekend.
Hundreds gathered at Hillcrest Baptist Church in New Albany Sunday night for a freedom celebration.
The event started off with a picnic and activities for the kids.
Then residents enjoyed a special performance by a combined choir made up of about 200 singers.
“It’s an opportunity for us and our churches to get together because we’re so thankful for what this means for the 4th of July week coming up, and all that’s been sacrificed for our country, but we are also grateful for the ultimate sacrifice that was paid for what Christ did for us,” said Pastor Greg Spencer, First Baptist Church. “The churches, we wanted to get together, have an opportunity to fellowship together, and also to worship together.”
The main program was with Dennis Swanberg, who’s known as “America’s Minister of Entertainment.”
