As one lady said when she spoke to her congregation on the Sunday following the Gathering; “it was not a meeting, but a Worship Celebration.” Indeed the entire day was an uplifting time of worship and singing, great preaching by Rev. Dr. Gary Edens, great food and fellowship. We had approximately 70 people in attendance from 6 DHF of NC churches.
