We are planning a very special interfaith service of prayer, praise and worship at the former site of Gulfside Assembly in Waveland, Mississippi on Friday, September 17 at 10 a.m. As we continue to cope with the Gulf oil spill, we have learned that the needs of so many are not only financial but spiritual.
This latest setback is one in a long line of hardships for the area, and the wear shows on our friends and neighbors.
This service will bring a diverse community of believers together, including national and regional leadership from the United Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church and the Catholic Church. Together, they will be able to minister to those impacted by the oil spill as well as those still working to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina.
Gulfside has endured several tragedies, yet it remains a refuge and sanctuary for those in need. These forces brought destruction to the buildings and the land, but the spirit of its people has remained strong.
We will update with more information on the interfaith service as it draws nearer. We hope to see you there for a day of worship at the former site of the Gulfside Assembly.
