Jamel Frye is promoting Family and Friends Day next Saturday – but he’s not calling this a fun day. It’s serious business.
“I’m asking all pastors who will to have their youth come out,” Frye said. “This is about raising awareness in our community about drugs and violence. We’re in a state of spiritual emergency in our community … I have a serious concern with violence, the murder rate, and drug use.”
Frye plans to have singing and a keynote speaker. Praise teams, dance and drama teams are invited. Anyone wishing to participate is asked to call Frye at 251-800-2396. You may also call if you’d like more information.
“I’m calling on black and white to come together,” Frye said. “We need to come together. Read the second chapter of Acts. Nothing happened until 120 got in one accord.”
Family and Friends Day will be held Saturday, September 23, 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the big baseball field at Houston Avery Park.
