Bringing the Gospel to the Open Air
On August 11, 2013 The Salvation Army Gary-Merrillville Corps and Community Center took the “Message to the Curb”. They had their regular Sunday morning worship service outside in the parking lot on the street curve. It was an initiative of their members and more than 40 people were present! As a result, one father and his young child sat on their porch across the street during the entire service. Another group of gentlemen came and joined the service as well. Christian Services Ministries, Nate Cielocha, visited with both onlookers. After a little while, Captain Dale Simmons talked and prayed with one of the visitors and asked if he would be O.K. with a visit. The young man welcomed the idea.
“Who says the Open Air is Dead”, said Captain Dale Simmons.
