CENTREVILLE — Over­com­ing ob­sta­cles such as rain, hu­mid­ity and a na­tional cli­mate of grow­ing com­mu­nity divi­sion, Faith Unity Fel­low­ship Min­istries per­se­vered to host a Com­mu­nity Fun Day at Mill­stream Park, Satur­day, July 9. The free event was open to the pub­lic and in­cluded ven­dors and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Wor-Wic Com­mu­nity Col­lege, Shore United Bank, Shore Up Head Start and the Queen Anne’s County Of­fice of the Sher­iff.

The church wanted to bring to­gether com­mu­nity re­sources, free cloth­ing, food, games and an op­por­tu­nity to fel­low­ship, said mem­ber Bon­nie Har­mon. Chil­dren were able to par­take in ta­bles set with board games, a bounce house and face paint­ing while adults so­cial­ized un­der the pav­il­ion or tents on the grass.

Faith Unity is a Chris­tian or­ga­ni­za­tion with a mis­sion to pro­vide out­reach min­istry world­wide and to bring to­gether those of dif­fer­ent de­nom­i­na­tional back­grounds into one fel­low­ship, and to bring to­gether in­di­vid­u­als dis­en­chanted with the bu­reau­cracy and pol­i­tics of or­ga­nized re­li­gion ... cre­at­ing a cli­mate of unity in the com­mu­nity. Bishop Robert M. Pritch­ett said that now is an even more im­por­tant time in our coun­try to bring peo­ple to­gether. He noted that in Queen Anne’s County and the East­ern Shore as a whole we are for­tu­nate to have com­mu­ni­ties that take pride in work­ing to­gether.

Faith Unity Fel­low­ship Min­istries is lo­cated at 208 New Street, Church Hill. Sun­day morn­ing ser­vices are held at 10:30 a.m. with ser­vices also on Wed­nes­day evenings.
