From Philadelphia to Denton

Church on Square to screen event live

A downtown church will screen a livestream of Harvest America on Saturday night.

Calvary Chapel, a local church housed in the Fine Arts Theatre on the Square, will take advantage of its cinema dimensions to show the contemporary Christian concert at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Harvest America is a large-scale revival service that will bring top Christian artists and bands to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Saturday. And this year, Harvest Christian Fellowship senior pastor Greg Laurie will preach the message. Harvest Christian Fellowship is based in Riverside, Calif.

Jane Piper, an official from Denton’s Calvary Chapel, said the local church will screen just Saturday night’s events, which will include gospel artist and choirmaster Kirk Franklin, Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae, contemporary Christian band Needtobreathe and the Katinas. Mercy Me and Jeremy Camp perform on Sunday.

The two-day event will also stream at www.harvestamerica.com for locals who wish to watch the second day’s performances and preaching.

Calvary Chapel is located at 115 N. Elm St. Admission is free.
