ELIZABETHTOWN — Folks are encouraged to come out for A Community Night of Worship on Sunday, Sept. 13, at 6 p.m. at the Tory Hole Park Amphitheater in Elizabethtown. Admission is free and a love offering will be taken.
The event is presented by Bladen Christian Outdoorsmen in conjunction with Dublin First Baptist Church and Lake Church.
The speaker for the event will be Evangelist David Pait of Real Word Outdoors and there will be live music provided by the 4 Points North Band.
“We thought it would be good to have the service where the community can come together,” said Jeff Gause of Bladen Christian Outdoorsmen.
Gause said that he and Pait grew up knowing one another.
“He has the same passion as I do for spreading the Gospel,” said Gause.
He added that the Dublin First Baptist Church is involved with mission work of the church.
“We try to get outside the church building,” said Gause.
He said the evening of worship is nondenominational and open to the public. Gause said the love offering will be used for further mission opportunities.
There will also be a performance by the 4 Points North Band. According to their website, the band was started in 2011 under the name of Psalm 150. It originally consisted of Jason Britt, Mitchell Miller, Trey Kaukola and Derek Hester, according to the website.
“After praying for an additional guitarist and a keyboardist, God sent Trey Nobles (keyboard) and Anthony Pittman (guitarist) in Late 2011. In 2012, Psalm 150 decided that it was time for a name change. After much consideration, they adopted the new name “4PointsNorth” which means “There are 4 points on the cross, and geographically we think of heaven as being to the north,” reads the website.
Gause said the group is a Christian contemporary band from Lumberton. He said they have performed in the area before.
“I met them when I attended a faith festival last year,” said Gause.
He added everyone is encouraged to bring their family, bring their friends, grab a lawn chair or a towel and come out to the Tory Hole Park Amphitheater and spend the evening.
