Community Praise Center Shares Christ at City Celebration

Story by Beth Michaels 

Members of Potomac Conference’s Community Praise Center (CPC) in Alexandria, Va., helped its hometown celebrate their 262nd birthday (as well as the United State’s 235th birthday) by sharing freebies with participants on Sabbath afternoon. Hundreds of residents and visitors attended the event expecting community exhibits, children’s activities, performances and birthday cake. 

Ten CPC members helped run the church’s booth, where they shared information on healthy living and cooking and distributed tracts, Steps to Christ, copies of Visitor magazine, sermons on CD and other information. According to member Hank Branch, Personal Ministries director and booth coordinator, more than 200 people stopped by their exhibit.

“This is the second year we have participated in this event,” Branch shares. “We are delighted to share God's Word and seek souls for the kingdom. We have been blessed and know that the Holy Spirit will work in the lives of every soul we ministered to.”

CPC’s next outreach efforts will be August 20 when members will share more resources with attendees of the 10th Annual One Love Community Festival. For more details, click here.
