We have set aside the entire day – Sunday, June 26 – as our Day of Unity and Hope here in Clark County. We have invited churches from throughout the community to find both significant and simple ways to promote unity, such as hosting combined church services, promoting county-wide faith events, hosting an afternoon gathering of believers from various backgrounds and styles of worship and more. All of this will culminate in our annual Summer Arts Festival concert – our Nehemiah Unity and Hope Concert – at 8 p.m. at Veterans Park.
Remember to set out your chairs and blankets in the wee hours of the morning. We are hoping to gather many people of faith to pack out the park for an evening of worship by the Unified Worship Collective and worshipful dance from Agape Dance Company. Come and be encouraged with the added inspiration, hope-stirring and community transformation action steps that can only happen among 30+ non-profits and 100+ churches!

Moving way beyond conversation, this Summit will provide the time, space, and opportunity for collaboration – culminating in concrete action steps and innovative tools that will equip, empower and mobilize all of us.
Together, community members from the government, social services, faith-based/church niches can bring our most creative and strategic ideas to address the most grievous concerns as a community. We believe even more wisdom and strategic ideas are coming to Springfield and Clark County, and want you to be a part of this conversation.
More information to come.
