SUMMER VIBES 2019:
"Givin' for the City"
For the last 6 years, Worship Arts Restoration has held Summer Vibes as a Big Backyard Bash!--- an inspiring time of good food, great entertainment and fun fellowship for WAR Members, friends and supporters, often resulting in a very successful fundraiser and membership campaign as well. But this year -- our 7th year-- we felt a strong and confirmed prompting from the Lord to bring "the back yard to the front yard".... to reach out to the City of Providence with our message of God's love, redemption and Restoration! The result?! Far beyond hitting a funding or membership goal! The fruit of this year's labor of love overflows with eternal value!
Hip Hope Haiti Missionary plants Tree in Honor of W.A.R!!
Our faithful W.A.R. member and servant of God, Paris Fisher, has faithfully served as a missionary to Haiti, bringing love, practical assistance, construction work, music, the Word....... and on this trip, tree planting! As God has allowed W.A.R. to offer small but consistent financial support to this important outreach, Paris honored us by planting a tree on behalf of Worship Arts Restoration! How awesome is that! Our prayers for our brothers and sisters in Haiti are that THEY will be like trees planted by streams of water, that bear fruit in their season--- that [despite devastating circumstances] their leaves will not wither, and in Jesus Name-- they will as a nation succeed in God's purpose!!
Next Hope Haiti trip coming up >>>>>November 2019!!
AUTUMN VIBES: Another Vibe-rant Success!!
I'm not quite sure how a rained-out outdoor event, turned into an AMAZING, VIBRANT Indoor Success --- except that God Did It! Won't He do it? Won't He will! :-)
Autumn Vibes exceeded expectations in attendance, in entertainment, and in the vibrant atmosphere filled with the presence of the Most High!
Beginning with the Call of the Shofar by Tim Gambles, the WAR House was transformed into an electrifying and inspiring performance venue, through the talents of Sarah Ashley (spoken word), Maureen Bodden, Myrna Ratchford and Shemaiah Thompson ("Bible Alive" drama performance), and Harriet and Tim Gambles (dance). Harriet wrapped up that portion of the evening with a powerful and moving vocal rendition of "Still I Rise."
Other highlights of the evening included vending by "BlackGifts.com" (April Johnson) and "Lavish Layers" (Sarah Ashley). We were also proud to recognize three Service Award recipients this year. Rowland Hinds, Myrna Ratchford and Alicia Siryon-Wells each received awards for 4 years of Service in the Arts. Finally, Paris Fisher did not recieve a tangible award, but we were tremendously blessed to send him off for his 5th Mission Trip to Haiti with a covering of PRAYER from his W.A.R. brothers and sisters!
The food, the fellowship, the FIRE! in this special night will not be easily forgotten! We look forward with great anticipation to the next opportunity to VIBE with this CREATIVELY-MINDED COMMUNITY of BELIEVERS!
