‘Biggest Thing We Need Right Now Is Jesus’ – Cantonment Community Revival Next Week At Carver Park

May 27, 2024

“The biggest thing we need right now is Jesus. He is the fixer.”

That’s what Josh Womack said as he described the Cantonment Community Revival is planned for June 3-8  at Carver Park in Cantonment.

Womack, Cantonment resident and member of the Cantonment Improvement Committee (CIC), worked with the North Escambia Fellowship of Churches and Pastor Andy Perry of Gonzalez Methodist Church to organize the event the revival.

“Sunday is the most segregated day of the week,” Womack said, “I met with Pastor Perry, and we worked to see we could get the churches together. We have eight so far.”

“We always wait until something bad happens and the first thing you see is the ministers and politicians come out. We are not being proactive; we are being reactive.”

After 12 years with CIC, the biggest thing Womack sees as missing in Cantonment is Jesus and church backing.

“We need out politicians and leaders, but to go ahead we need Jesus’ love at the forefront,” he said.

The Cantonment Community Revival will take place from 6-8 p.m.  at Carver Park on Webb Street:

  • Monday, June 3: Pastor Anthony Perry, Gonzalez Methodist Church
  • Tuesday, June 4: Rev. Leon Bell, Associate Pastor Greater First Baptist Church of Cantonment
  • Wednesday, June 5: Pastor Gene McCants, Providence Baptist Church
  • Thursday, June 6: Brother Vincent Wilson, Deliverance Tabernacle
  • Friday, June 7: Pastor Robert Gross, Back to the Cross Christian Center
  • Saturday, June 9: A Family and Friends Fellowship Day will wrap up the week from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m..

    He speaks the absolute truth. Jesus Christ is the only answer there is. Regardless of what solution that mankind has to offer is never enough.
