Waterfront Worship returns to lakeshore; benefits HELP Ministry

Prayer, praise and fellowship took center stage at Saturday’s Waterfront Worship concert at Waterfront Park Pavilion in Ludington.

The free concert, which also serves as a donation drive and fundraising effort for HELP Ministry, brought hundreds of people to the cusp of Lake Michigan for an evening of spiritual music.

Waterfront Worship Director Verne Kenney said the purpose of the concert was to encourage creativity and songwriting, and to benefit area churches and add to the repertoires of churches.

“Some of the songs you might know, others you might not, but all are written to serve your local church,” Kenney told the crowd in introduction.

Performing at Saturday’s concert were local group Jason Chapel & Friends and two artists from Franklin, Tennessee: Here be Lions, fronted by Dustin Smith, and Michael Farren, who performed together to close out the show.

Jason Chapel & Friends performed a series of original songs as the sun started to inch down over the horizon. “Waterfront Worship” was drawn in chalk at the foot of the stage, where children ran and danced to the music.
