GILMER–Some nine congregations of the Church of Christ in Upshur and Wood Counties invite the public to attend “An Evening with Jesus” Sunday at the Yamboree Exhibit Building, located off U.S. 271 in the Yamboree Park in Gilmer.

Eric B. King, minister of the Valley View Church of Christ, is speaker for the event, set for 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Valley View is among congregations sponsoring the event.
Topic of the gathering is “Jesus–The Answer to Life’s Problems.”

A flyer promoting the event, furnished by Pritchett Church of Christ member Bruce Pace, says in part that while Jesus Christ “died for our sins…He also ate with us, walked with us and talked with us. He attended our weddings. If he were here now, He would sit down and have a meal with us. Come and have ‘An Evening With Jesus” and let Him give us solutions to life’s problems.”

Congregations sponsoring the event hold a joint Sunday afternoon service once monthly, said R.B. Watts, a member of the Pritchett Church of Christ. Besides Valley View and Pritchett, they include the Piedmont Church of Christ, Lyle Street Church of Christ in Big Sandy, Big Sandy Church of Church, Cypress Street Church of Christ in Gilmer, Shady Grove Church of Christ and Sand Hill Church of Christ, all in Upshur County, and the East Side Church of Christ in Hawkins, located in Wood County.
