All-Church Worship Gathering
Sunday, October 2 at 3:00 pm
Wakefield Baptist Church, 236 Main Street, Wakefield, RI
This annual event has become a highlight of our shared times together as the American Baptist Churches of Rhode Island. Our Worship Gathering will be hosted by Wakefield Baptist Church (236 Main, Wakefield) at 3:00pm. The worship time will feature Rev. Dr. Vincent Thompson, Senior Pastor of Community Baptist Church, Newport, as our annual preacher. Rev. Dr. Thompson will be joined in worship leadership by his congregation’s choir, as well as the host church’s choir, Canonicus summer camp counselor staff, and many others.
One of the highlights of our service will be an opportunity for each and every church to offer one of their ministries to God. The planning team is asking that each church bring a small item that is representative of one of their ministries within their community. For example: if you have clothing ministry, you may bring a single item of clothing; if you have a food pantry, you may bring a can of food; if you have a feeding ministry, you may bring a serving spoon; if you have a prayer shawl ministry, you may bring a knitted/crocheted piece; etc.
In addition to the great music, powerful preaching and times of dedication and prayer, we will be celebrating the ministry of our local congregations and pastors by recognizing those churches who are celebrating a significant anniversary and pastors who are celebrating an anniversary of their ordination.
