Faith Unity Fellowship hosts Community Fun Day
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.
