Episcopal Youth Gathering: Keep Lakewood Beautiful Day Of Service And Christian Rock

More than 50 youth in grades 7-12 will spend the morning on Saturday, May 3, helping the Lakewood community through the Keep Lakewood Beautiful organization. As part of the Spring Youth Gathering, an annual event for teens sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio. The kids will lend a hand with clean-up and Earth Day activities, including cleaning city sidewalks, and downtown parks, litter pick-up, collecting household waste for recycling, and planting flowers and trees.

This year's Spring Youth Gathering is hosted by the Church of the Ascension in Lakewood,  and will commence with program activities on Friday evening, the Keep Lakewood Beautiful project on Saturday morning, followed by a concert by notable Christian rock band, The LivingStones. Having released their first full-length album, "Glow," in 2011, the band has been a part of worship services and youth gatherings in the US and Mexico, and performed at The Big Ticket Festival, a three-day Christian music festival which hosts more than 10,000 people per day.

The community is invited to this concert, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Church of the Ascension located at 13216 Detroit Avenue. Parking is available at the church. There is no cost to attend. The LivingStones will also lead in the church’s worship service at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.
