The event will take place on Tommy Baker Field. Anyone in the community is welcome to attend to worship God, read the Bible, and celebrate their faith, coordinators said.
“Debbie Bowman will be sharing her testimony from the perspective of her daughter, Emily, who was critically injured when hit by a car on Feb. 16,” said Brandon Roberts, president of the FCA chapter at Cherokee High School.
Sequoyah High School senior Griffin Dwyer will also speak. Others include adult challenge speaker Dr. Ed Newton and a coaches’ testimony by coach Jeremy Law.
Worship music will be provided by Christian rock band Neverclaim. The six-piece band from Portland, Ore., combines indie rock with collective worship. “We never want to claim God’s glory as our own,” is the band’s motto.
The Fields of Faith is a free event open to all ages. It is supported by private sponsorships and individuals in the community.
“It started in Oklahoma four years ago,” Roberts said. This is the fourth year the event has taken place in Cherokee County.
Events will include testimonies, reading the Bible and music. There will also be concessions by the Football Booster Club available.
“We have done this for four years and we have seen thousands of lives changed … It has been an amazing experience to see people have a relationship with Christ,” he said. “It has been a very inspirational experience.” For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cherokeefieldsoffaith.com.
