Water's Edge Gathering holds fall festival

by Brandon Richards

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - About 300 people turned out at Prien Lake Park late Sunday afternoon for Water's Edge Gathering's fall festival.

"Once a month we have just parties, get-togethers for the people who come to our church and anyone else who would like to come," Pastor Tony Bourque said.  "We just have a lot of food, a lot of games. We have a bunch of stuff for the kids, things for them to hang out, stuff for them to play."

The Lake Charles Community Band even showed up to provide some very well-received musical entertainment as church members and others pulled up a seat and listened to the band play.

One of the benefits the church gets for holding the festival in a public park is the opportunity to recruit new members, as the festival is open to everyone.

"It's for anybody, anybody who wants to come hang out," Bourque said. "They can come get food, play games, hang out with us. It's not just for the people who come to our church."

Water's Edge Gathering currently holds Sunday services at the Cinemark movie theater at Prien Lake Mall. Bourque says in just a couple of weeks, members will be breaking ground on a facility of their very own.
