Faith & Blue Weekend at Walden Galleria
— Members of faith groups and law enforcement to host free community weekend event series at WNY’s largest mall —
Buffalo, NY: Impacting Love Global Ministries & Partners is presenting a community event series for local residents on Saturday, October 8th and Sunday, October 9th at Walden Galleria. These free events coincide with National Faith & Blue Weekend, which seeks to facilitate safer and stronger communities by engaging law enforcement officers and community members through the connection of faith-based organizations. Other local participating agencies include Cheektowaga Police Department, Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce, Federal and Local Law Enforcement Agencies, National Federation for Just Communities of WNY, Inc., and Resurrection Life Church.
The event series kicks off with the Faith & Blue Walk With You Parade taking place inside the common area of Walden Galleria on Saturday, October 8th beginning at 12:00 p.m. noon on the lower level near the Apple Store. Several gifts and prizes will be distributed, and community members are encouraged to join the walk and participate in a special panel discussion at 1:00 p.m. following the parade. The panel discussion is an opportunity for individuals to ask questions and provide an open dialogue between various faith groups, law enforcement officers, and community members. Panel discussion members include Apostle Garney Davis Jr., Cheektowaga Police Chief Brian Gould, Paster Dave Marzak of Resurrection Life Church, and Dr. James A. Lewis.
“Our mission is to convey and display a solidarity of care and concern within our community,” said Apostle Garney Davis Jr. “We want to let individuals and community members know that they are not alone.”
On Sunday, October 9th an Inter-Faith Worship service will be taking place at 2:00pm at Impacting Love Global Ministries inside Walden Galleria located near Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. This service is encouraged for all members of faith to come together for inter-faith prayer.
