Local couple organizes upcoming One Worship Fest

One Worship Fest will be held from noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4 at Five Points Plaza, the parking lot at the corner of Evans and Fifth streets in downtown Greenville.

The free event, organized by a local couple, is billed as "a community worship experience for the whole family."

Worship music will be performed by Opendoor Worship, One Promise Gospel band, Reimage Creative Arts, and gospel rap by Sound the Messenger.

A KidZone will include inflatable bouncers from NuLook Bounce n Party, face painting, Bible storytelling, and interactive physical and visual arts activities.

Food trucks from Villa Verde, Smash Waffles and Kona Ice will sell food.

A portion of the money raised through food sales, sponsorships and donations will go to Restore One and its mission of "opening and developing innovative safe home care that embraces holistic healing and therapeutic support for male survivors of sex trafficking." Anchor House will be the first safehouse for boys ages 12-18 in the United States.

One Worship Fest organizers Kenn and Crystal Pritchard created the event to share their faith with the community and honor the "first fruits" principle.

"We got married last year and it is a true gift from God,” Crystal said. "Instead of having a honeymoon, God put it on our hearts to give back."

Kenn said, "We are motivated to worship God for who He is and to provide a place for the local church to do that together."

Crystal said she and Kenn put together a day of music and food in Winterville last year -- and folks immediately began asking about the next One Worship Fest.

"We weren't planning for this to be a multiple year event, but now our vision keeps growing," she said.

"We are excited about the changes this year and those to come." Follow One Worship Fest on Facebook at
