Impact Fellowship held a gospel celebration service in the Multi-Purpose Room in the CUB on Sunday, Feb. 20, at 2:30 p.m. The service was held in honor of Black History Month.
The service was led by Pastor Derek Brown of the Impact Fellowship located in Middletown, Pennsylvania. The service included live music and dinner following the reception.
“I don’t know about you, but I came here this afternoon just to give God some praise this afternoon,” Pastor Brown said during the service. “You know, victory is my biggest testimony. As you know, testimonies are that one time you just get to talk about how good God has been to you, or maybe you just want to say, ‘God, I need you right now. There are some things I’m dealing with, some things that I’m battling with right now and I need you right here.’” Pastor Derek then allowed members of the audience to testify.
“I, myself, have been going through a lot in school, work, relationships, and mainly myself,” one Shippensburg student said. “Every man has their ups and downs, their trials and tribulations. I would like to thank God to allow me to get through it.”
“I would like to thank God for putting me where I am today,” another Shippensburg student said. “I was losing relationships with my blood, my family, and God gave me a spiritual family.”
