Together, Like Heaven: An evening of unity in worship

Springfield, MO— On January 15th, a unified worship service was hosted by Sanctuary of Praise, COGIC. An event with guests made up from surrounding black congregations and Central Assembly, one of the larger and predomately white congregations in Springfield.
Coordinator, Pastor TJ Appleby said, “the joint worship service was an opportunity for black and white men and women to come together in the presence of Almighty God to worship him inSpirit and Truth.” The theme was “Together, Like Heaven.”
“How can we expect to worship together in heaven when we can’t first figure out how to worship together here on earth?”
There were about 500 people in attendance at the event that included a 9 minute video on the Rev. Dr. Martin L King, several inspiring messages from area ministers and a combined group of singers from Central Assembly and Sanctuary of Praise.
