The 2013 Bay Area Churches of Christ Mass Worship was held recently at the Richmond Memorial Auditorium and Convention Center. The event was attended by more than 1,700 community members.
The April 21 event, hosted by Bay Area Churches of Christ, featured a Bible class facilitated by Minister Fred Clayton of Westside Church of Christ and sermons by Stacy Jones and Greg Brinkley.
The event included congregational exhibits designed to promote fellowship among participants and afford them an opportunity to learn about Bay Area churches.
Bishop Ronald Jackson of MacDonald Avenue Church of Christ and Minister Fred Clayton of Westside Church of Christ held a debriefing meeting on May 17.
The Bay Area Churches will begin planning for the 2014 Bay Area Worship Service, tentatively scheduled to take place April 20, 2014.
