REED CITY — Despite a night of blustery, cold weather and slippery roads, local churches gathered Sunday to celebrate community togetherness with a Unity service.

The Reed City Area Ministerial Association hosted the community event at the Reed City Church of the Nazarene. The building vibrated with joyful songs of praise and thanksgiving. Each local church had a part in the service, including their contribution of music. A time of delicious desserts and fellowship followed.

All area churches are invited to be an active part of the Ministerial Association. The next meeting will be at 10 a.m. on Feb. 14 at St. Philip Neri Church. The next community church event will be the Good Friday Cross Walk through the streets of Reed City.
