Allegheny West, Ohio Churches Merge for Joint Worship in Akron
Story by Lynn Lee
“We were able to do these things because through Christ, all things are possible,” said Kenneth J. Washington, Canton pastor. He strongly feels that there is work to be done in evangelism and soul winning. He added, “Adventists have commonality when it comes to doing these things.”
Jerry Chase, Akron First pastor, was the evening speaker. He addressed the importance of a personal relationship with Christ, stating that we should feel as elated about Christ as did about finding our first love. “I remember when I first fell in love with my wife, Brenda. I made her a special breakfast, putting time and energy in making a presentable dish. That’s how everything should be done in our lives with Christ—carefully select our decisions and how we present ourselves to Christ.”
The song “Glory Hallelujah Since I Laid My Burdon Down” echoed in the background as worshipers came to show that they were laying their troubles in the hands of the Lord. According to Bethel ‘first lady’ Wendy Roberson, fellowshipping with individuals of all nationalities is what praising God is all about. “We are showing God how much we love Him when we come together like this,” she commented.
Youth and adults both contributed to the evening of song, music and praise. Jaedon Thornton, a 7-year-old Bethel band member, showed that you are never too young to praise God.
