One Night in Monroe
More than 15 multi-denominational churches in Monroe County come together for joint worship on Saturday. One Night is a first-time event that organizers hope to continue annually and to supplement with other gatherings throughout the year.
One Night aims to be a “visible expression of unity between denominations, ethnicities, and generations,” in line with what John described in Revelation 7:9-10 as “a great multitude before the throne worshiping the Lamb of God.” Worship will be led in English and in Spanish, with interpretation for the hearing impaired.
One Night begins at 6 p.m. at the MBT Expo Center, 3775 S. Custer Rd., Monroe. There is no cost to attend; registration is optional. For more information, go to onenightmonroe.com.
