Church in the Park(ing Lot)

In the last 4 Years God has blessed Experience Life Church. For the 4th year in a row to celebrate we held our Church in the Park. Last year, because of weather and power lines down at the park we held it in our church parking lot. The Lord cleared the weather and the day was filled with the love, fun, and Spirit of God. This year we decided to take it back to our church parking lot to be a positive spiritual influence to our local community on King Street. God did not fail to amaze. In spite of a weather forecast that was dreary; God cleared the skies and the sun shined bright. We celebrated with food, fun, fellowship, but most of all the Love and the Word of God was spread through action and Preached Word.

I was thrilled about the entire day but my highlight was my new found brother-in-Christ who had not intended to attend church that day but the music from ELC Praise Team caught his attention. After the Word was preached my new found brother-in-Christ gave his life to Christ. Throughout our 4 year journey as long as God is pleased my spirit is at ease.

I want to thank the entire Experience Life Church family for your commitment, love through action, and efforts put forth to make this day so special. I want to thank Little Piney Grove Baptist Church who I also have the blessing of pastoring in Va Beach. The last two years they have joined ELC during Church in the Park and LPG’s choir has blessed the community. Special thanks to Damian Litecoin Bell of Moer Entertainment. Comedian Dave Champion and the community of King Street for showing up and showing out!
God is Love!
