Old fashioned revival weekend to be held at Pas Ka Poo Park

Revival tent meeting to be held at Pas Ka Poo Park

 

An old-fashioned revival tent meeting to be held at Pas Ka Park will bring the month of August to a close in Rimbey this year.

The three-day event, to be held Aug. 26, 27 and 28, will feature evangelist Anita Pearce, an acclaimed preacher of the gospel and a motivational speaker.

Pearce was raised on a farm in south
eastern Saskatchewan. When she was only a child she felt a call to be a missionary-evangelist.

She followed the calling, and for more than 30 years has traveled full time, in evangelistic services, ministering in more than 40 countries, particularly in Western Europe and Canada.

Pearce is also a songwriter and musician and has produced numerous country gospel recordings and authored several inspirational books.

Cheryle Berggren, who is spearheading the revival tent meeting which is called, ‘The King is Coming,’ is excited about the event and is pleased with how well plans are coming together.

She invisions Pas Ka Poo Park as a perfect setting for such an event, noting it provides a wonderful backdrop full of history and charm.

The event will begin Friday with a fish and loaves supper, in keeping with the story of the fishes and loaves in the Bible.

“Everything is free, but there will be a goodwill offering,” said Berggren.

Following the supper music will be provided by Robin Wheale from the Winfield area and guest speaker Anita Pearce will preach.

On Saturday, a group of volunteers will have a table set up at the Rimbey Farmers’ Market selling Pearce’s CDs and books.

Dennis Eisenbarth, Karen Steeves and Robin Wheale will provide Saturday’s music.

“There will be a fair amount of gospel music on Saturday,” said Berggren.

Pearce will hold another revival meeting in the afternoon which will be followed by a picnic.

Mary Nyachieo, will perform an African offering dance during the service.

An open church service will be held on Sunday and AveryKerklaan and the musical group Without Borders will perform.

Pearce said churches from the community have stepped forward to help with various tasks associated with the tent meeting. Local businesses have also generously provided donations to help with food and expenses.

On Friday and Saturday a bouncy castle will be set up to provide entertainment for the children.

A youth group from Edmonton Ethiopian Church will also be in attendance.
