Petersburg, VA — (August 29, 2017)– It’ was a family affair for the City of Petersburg and surrounding areas thanks to the Greater Works Christian Fellowship!


The Greater Works Christian Fellowship (GWCF) recently hosted Petersburg’s very first Citywide Praise Family Fun Day on Saturday, August 26, 2017!


Residents came out with their lawn chairs, blankets, neighbors, kids and their church family to listen to local and national talent.  The Citywide Praise party took place at Greater Works Christian Fellowship, 801 South Adams Street, Petersburg, Virginia 23805, formerly the old Southside Regional Medical Center and Petersburg General Hospital!  The location directly behind the new church location was perfect with the stage sitting on a hit and a large open field directly in front.

This year’s special guests included Tamika Patton, M.O.P Roc’co, Lauren Brooks, Pastor Shawn, Mercedes, Glory 2 God, Secret Weapon, the Virginia State University Gospel Choral and the award winning Kurt Carr.
