The South Central Conference Family Life Department had its first “We Value Family” Fall Festival the weekend of November 4-6, 2016, in the Natchez/Fayette, Miss., Church district.
Marcus McIntyre, pastor, and his wife, Mishiki, welcomed the attendees with open arms. During the weekend, workshops were conducted, as well as one-on-one counseling sessions for the members and community.
The Sabbath service was outstanding with great music, food, and fellowship. Sunday morning started out bright and early with the whole church embracing the city of Fayette as the Fall Festival was launched. It was so moving to observe everyone from the youngest to the oldest collaborating to make the Festival a success. And a success it was: Steps to Christ were passed out, and invitations to the evangelistic meeting were shared as cars and pedestrians passed by.
McIntyre spoke in the town square about family and the love of Jesus. Some city officials from the police and fire departments came and shared in the games, food, and community camaraderie. One of the city sorority members came, and prayer was offered for the whole city. God blessed the Festival above and beyond expectations.
