Religious Event Unites a Communities

On Saturday, June 2, 2001, over 2,000 people gathered in Huntsville, Alabama to kick-off their annual March for Jesus/Jesus Day 2001. Like many other participants in different locations around the world, citizens in Huntsville, AL celebrated the annual Pentacost weekend event to exalt Jesus Christ and break down the stereotypical walls of race, gender and religion.

Community members enjoyed a variety of free foods and services at activities held across the city. Block parties, nursing home ministries, food distributions and community health fairs brought many people together as neighbors reached out to one another with helping hands of friendship and support.

Charlotte Wyckoff, coordinator for the March for Jesus 2001 said, "It's a relationship with the churches, community, and social agencies trying to make our city a better city. We think about missions being overseas, but if we look in our own back yard, there are a lot of needs to be met there."
