Church hosts inaugural Saturday concert

By Lenny C. Lepola -

Last weekend, members of Sunbury United Methodist Church launched a new Saturday evening concert and casual come-as-you-are service, featuring contemporary music by Contact, a brief video, and a message by Pastor Mike Mack.

Church youth director Angie Buxton said the more relaxed worship style — with upbeat music and a relevant message — is ideal for those who might not be comfortable attending traditional church services.

Mack spoke about the intersection of hopelessness and faith, using the example of the Roman Centurion’s faith when he asked Jesus to heal his dying servant.

The church will host a new Contact concert and casual service at 6 p.m. every Saturday in the church sanctuary.

The church is at 100 W. Cherry St.
