An upcoming family friendly event aims to foster church unity and bring all church communities in Prince George together.

The Northern Lights Glory Fest will be held on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2023 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Park.

Attendees are encouraged to join at the bandshell for a day filled with worship, prayer, testimonies, food, kids' activities, and more. Everyone is welcome to participate for any duration, whether it's an hour or the entire day.

“This is a time for Christians to mingle among themselves and come together,” event planner Ellen Knife says.

“This is an opportunity to get to know each other in the church community, network, and hear more about the initiatives that they are passionate about.”

The event will feature 12 musical acts throughout the day, including special guest performers – a dance group all the way from California. There will also be food trucks with delicious treats available for purchase and children’s activities running from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The kids’ activities will be strategically placed in the middle of the seating area, so parents can keep an easy eye on their children while mingling with other churchgoers and taking in the entertainment.

Organized by the Prince George Peacemakers, the Northern Lights Glory Fest is open to all, including Christian community members, whether you're a regular churchgoer, part of para-church groups, families, or just interested. Out of town groups from Vanderhoof and Quesnel will also be in attendance.

The aim of the event is to improve communication among the various church communities in the city and to work together to promote community initiatives.

The Peacemakers emphasize the significance of collaborative efforts, understanding that achieving their goals is best realized through interconnectedness. By leveraging individual differences and strengths, they mutually encourage growth and embody the concept of cross-discipleship.

Knife, who is Cree from Saskatchewan, will also be leading the group in some First Nations-style worship.

“This event is not just about churches, it’s about everyone being accepted,” Knife says. 

“Seeing the hearts of people is where the true gold of humanity shines through rather than only looking at the outside. Every person has great worth and we hope to see each other at this gathering in that light.”

The Peacemakers are hoping that by hosting this event, they can bring together like-minded church communities who want to work together to help Prince George thrive.

The group has hosted many community events, including the annual Prince George Civic Prayer Breakfast that brings together the mayor, city officials, community members, and believers, fostering unity and camaraderie. This event offers a platform to support, uplift, and pray for the city's leadership, promoting a sense of togetherness within the community.

Knife hopes that everyone in the Prince George and area church community will join them on Aug. 26.
