BlessFest was birthed through the unification of many downriver Churches partnering together through a movement in the Detroit Metro area called EACH. The actual BlessFest event was a God given burden on the hearts of many downriver church leaders to bless their communities because of the great needs they were seeing and experiencing daily. This event gives people not only the ability to experience the Good Deeds, but also the Good News of HOPE as many will share their 2wordstory at this event. Bless Fest is a partnership among local churches, businesses, counselors and local organizations. To register to help go to www.BlessFest.info or call New Hope Assembly of God, 14000 Racho, Taylor at 734-287-4673.
