25 Countries in a Single Church


Capitol City church always looks for ways to interact, help, and engage the local community. On September 10, the church held its annual international day church service and potluck, which recognizes and celebrates the more than 25 countries represented in their church body.

Members and guests representing 25 nations were dressed in colorful attire from their respective countries. The potluck dinner was akin to an international bazaar with ethnic foods from the Caribbean, Eastern and Western Europe, Africa, and the Americas. According to one attendee, “I was blown away by the friendliness of the staff and all the diverse clothing of their home countries. The food was phenomenal, and I can’t wait for next year.” 

Carol Herbert, church member and mission council leader, said, “This year's international day was one of our best celebrations. We received compliments on everything, from the program and the set-up to the food. Praise God!”
