LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Congregants from five downtown Lafayette churches weren’t sitting in their pews this morning.
They were seated together in chairs along Sixth Street to Worship in the Street. The crowd sang hymns and recited scripture before Bradley Pace, rector at Saint John’s Episcopal Church, gave the sermon.
He celebrated the different denominations preset while urging unity and to embrace their common Christian belief. Trinity Methodist’s new senior pastor Tracey Leslie echoed Pace’s sentiment.
“It’s important for all of us to be working together as brothers and sisters in Christ to meet the needs that are here in the Lafayette city and in the community,” said Leslie.
Communion was served to each denominations preference, some drinking juice and others wine. The gathering also took an offering, putting the funds towards Lafayette Urban Ministry.
