The Meridian Gospel Traveler's has been celebrating it's 26th Anniversary all weekend long.
For 26 years, singing has been the main part of the celebrating bringing the festivities to life. The primary purpose is to bring the community together to show thanks for each other and worship.
Today's celebration took place at Meridian's Mt. Carmel Baptist Church at three Sunday afternoon.
Reverend Grover Mosley explains the importance of the longtime tradition.
"Well a lot of people that normally want to go to church through singing they would come to church. Some of them turned their life around through singing. And some don't go to to church, but I love doing this because I love serving the lord," says Rev. Grover Mosley.
Sunday's singing activity brought church members from numerous churches. The event lasted all afternoon.
