It's a free fun fair the entire community.

They got to enjoy food, a jumpy house for the kids and live entertainment at the gazebo.

"This gathering for is just simply to show the unity that we have in christ in this community that churches are not competing against one another but walking in unity together to share the gospel message to let people know that Jesus can make a difference in their life," says Belpre United Methodist Pastor, Rod Brower.

Belpre United Methodist Church, Rockland United Methodist Church and Porterfield Baptist Church were among the organizers for the first ever gathering.

Members of the churches hopes to continue this event in the future.
