Critter Ministry will sponsor an evening of praise and worship – accompanied with a light show, strobes, lasers and CO2 cannons – at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Barton County 4-H Building, located between Great Bend and Hoisington at 601 North U.S. 281.
The Rev. Art Crider of Albert said those present will celebrate the love of Christ and a renewal of faith, giving all the glory to Christ.
“All are welcome and encouraged to come celebrate the cross, where our debt was paid by Jesus Christ so all could have eternal life,” Crider said.
There will be free refreshments and giveaways. Must be present to win.
Critter Ministries held its first evangelical gathering for Great Bend last January with a goal to “change the face of a nation through the promises of God in Scriptures by salvation, love, grace and relationship with Jesus Christ and not by religion.”
Arthur Crider and his wife Mindy said they hope to spread the word about their new evangelical Christian ministry in Barton County by holding various public events in the next few months. They call their new ministry “Critter Ministry” as a play on words, because their last name sounds like “critter” and critter is a word that means “any creature.”
Second Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (King James Version). Newer translations of the Bible use the word “creation” instead of “creature.”
The Criders stress that all are welcome in the ministry regardless of lifestyle, previous denomination or past choices.
