On Sunday, nearly half dozen congregations from multiple houses of worships will be under one roof worshipping one God.
It’s all a part of Change 4 La Grange.
A group that’s trying to bridge racial divides in the La Grange community.
The Change 4 La Grange Worship will be from 10 A.M. until noon at the La Grange Community Center.
The center is located at 410 E. Washington Street.
Organizers believe this event will be a game-changer for La Grange.
“It is very important as far as leadership is concerned that the Christian community be a part of the change that is taking place,” said Pastor John Wiggins of First Missionary Baptist Church. “We should be leading the way.”
“I think it’s a really big step forward for La Grange,” said Tyrone Morgan, President of the La Grange Chamber of Commerce. “Some of the biggest problems that we have in our town is racial. The combining of this event is a major step moving forward and breaking some cultural differences.”
After worship, a meal will be served to encourage fellowship.
This event is part of an overall movement that’s been underway in La Grange for the past year.
Other initiatives include community service projects that allowed middle and high school students to help clean up their community.
Back to school events were also held to help prepare students for their studies.
