PHILIPSBURG:--- My thought on the St. Maarten Day of Worship 2016, held on July 5th, at the Walter Plantz Pier: Good Initiative and great potential for a summer activity.

PHILIPSBURG/MARIGOT-The 10th anniversary of the St. Martin Believers Connection Convention has been hailed a success with the largest gathering of supportive Christian churches and organizations' participation ever.
The annual conference was held under the theme "Let the Fire Blaze in Our Jerusalem” at the Kingdom Complex of the Christian Fellowship Church in Colebay. It was symbolic of a jubilee celebration with both sides of the island coming together for a panoramic display of talent in dance, drama, singing and even miming, all with the goal of praise and worship to God.
Over the course of the 6 day event, attendees heard from international speakers who delivered congratulatory remarks and solidarity messages.
