I want to let you know about an event that happens in Lebanon every year.
Festival of Life is an annual carnival sponsored by a number of churches and ministries in the Lebanon area. The Festival was birthed out of a weekly pastors’ prayer meeting (Lebanon Valley Prayer Network) a number of years ago. From the beginning, the goal is to lift the name of Jesus in Lebanon.
The Festival of Life is a fun, lively event for our city. There is a worship stage, “bouncy houses,” hot dogs; concessions face painting, and gospel bracelets, a puppet show, as well as a grocery give-away with individual counseling beforehand. There are prayer stations, free health screening, and representatives from a verity of organizations, like the Rescue Mission, LCCM, CareerLink, YMCA, Teen Challenge and YFC just to name a few.
The purpose is not to promote any specific church, but to work together as the Body of Christ to promote the love of Jesus in our city.
I understand Lebanon is a bit of a distance for some of you, however, I thought I would give you the opportunity to invite anyone within your congregation who would like to come out and join us. As an urban missionary to the city, I can offer a wide variety of ways to assist. There are opportunities for youth (ages 14-18) to watch over the inflatables, evangelist to walk around and engage the community, people willing to go for this and go for that, help with disposing of trash, and clean up. Face painters are always welcomed!
This year the Festival of Life will take place on Saturday, June 17, 2017, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Lebanon Middle School Stadium on N. 7th Street.
As a guest, willing to volunteer or send volunteers you would not be obligated to partner or give financially in a way however, we always want to invite additional pastors into the planning process. In addition to any physical tasks necessary for the event, sponsoring ministries and partners generally contribute $300 toward the cost of the Festival. We understand this may be a stretch for some congregations and welcome partners paying what they are able.
Our next planning meeting will be Thursday, May 18, from either 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Youth With A Mission (1275 Birch Rd, Lebanon, Pa 17042). We have quite a lot to discuss, but we would love to see new faces.
Please contact me for any details.
