There are many churches within our community that hold services each and every Sunday and throughout the week. Sunday, a group of churches celebrated together.
Sunday marked the 2nd Annual Celebration Community Choir. The gathering took place at Meridian's Bethel Baptist Missionary Church. It included a number of local churches.
Talents were showcased with performances by choirs, soloists, praise dance teams, and poem readers. Church members say it's important for people from all over to come together.
"Well when your community comes together that means you can accomplish a lot more here and we can do a lot more things together. So we figure the community comes together and we will learn and know each other, therefore we will grow together," says Linda Scott, a member of Bethel Baptist Missionary Church.
According to church members, this celebration allows them to remember that praises go up and blessings come down. With this in mind, they say all gods children get together.
