Blessed Hope Baptist Church in Troy will hold the second annual Celebration in the Park Saturday. The community is invited to attend this free event.
There will be games for children beginning at 11 and hamburgers and hotdogs for everyone.
Following the meal, there will be gospel music at 1 p.m., featuring singing with Julie Council, Connie and Sarah Tittle and others.
“Come join the fun as we celebrate and praise God for this great nation and the freedoms He allows us to have here in the United States,” said the pastor, the Rev. Terry Council.
The church is located at 126 North Maple St.
Brundages to minister
The Rev. Hardy and Marianne Brundage of Houston will be ministering at Manna Ministries, located at 4001 Ken-Tenn Highway, Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
The couple have a traveling ministry of preaching and singing, backed by letters of recommendation from well-known ministers such as Paul Crouch, Mike Murdock, R.W. Shambach and Nancy Harmon, according to a spokesman, who said Brundage has been praised as an outstanding preacher and minister of the Word of God and is in the forefront of evangelism today.
Mrs. Brundage is a talented gospel singer. Some time ago, after an examination and consultation with several medical specialists, she was pronounced stricken with terminal cancer and “given up to die.”
Her testimony of God’s healing power has encouraged many others to reach out and accept their miracle and healing from God.
Her anointed singing and testimony will bless and strengthen you, according to the pastor, the Rev. Ruth Green.
The community is invited to attend.
