EUREKA SPRINGS – About 30 members of New Day Fellowship, a new church affiliated with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, participated along with more than a dozen churches April 19 in downtown Eureka Springs – providing music and participating in a “Celebrate Jesus” parade.
The New Day Fellowship’s worship band, led by Paul Harris and his wife, Danyelle, performed with their daughter, Alyysa, and their two sons, Daxton and Caleb, at Basin Park, said Darryl Harris, New Day Fellowship pastor.
The next day, on Easter Sunday, the church had 130 people in its service, with three of the couples visiting saying they learned of New Day Fellowship through the parade event and concert, said Harris.
“Of course, we were passing out information about New Day Fellowship in the parade They loved meeting our people,” said Harris.
“It is a very eclectic community. Yet, right in the heart of that … we are just in an outpouring of God’s Spirit,” said Harris, adding, “And people are hungry to connect with the Lord.”
