More than 600 people responded to the “Awakening” during the three day event held on the lawn of a private residence near Cardington.
Seated under a huge tent, those attending heard speakers and musicians bring the “Awakening” and a hope for the hopeless, help for the helpless, healing for the hurting and truth to the deceived.
Steve Brenneman, coordinator, said this was the second annual “Awakening” service and a third is planned for 2017.
“A lot of hearts were touched during these services,” said Brenneman, who spoke and sang during the event.
Other speakers were Daneen Spearman, Jeff and Peggy Hubschman and Matt Eichorn, from Bucyrus who quoted and dramatized the second chapter of Gideons.
Also speaking was Liz Gliem, Cardington, home from Mozambique, Africa where she works on a Moringa tree farm. She shared how God is working through the people there.
Music was shared throughout the three days and included the Marionaires Barbershop chorus and the Praise team from Vineyard Church of Morrow County.
Brenneman said “this was a community effort that goes beyond Morrow County.” He thanked the MCTC for shuttling those attending from the Cardington-Lincoln High School parking lot to the site of the event.
The Marionaires singing at the “Awakening” held at the Gliem Property on Twp Road 144, Friday, Saturday and Sunday The Marionaires Barber Shop group sang several selections including “The Lord’s Prayer,” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
