LUCASVILLE — Wednesday night at the Spring Jubilee was a service the Evangelistic Outreach Ministries (EO) will never forget, with 1,611 coming out to honor United States veterans and all branches of the military. The Marching Mohawks of Northwest High School provided a special performance at the event.

Brian Baer, assistant pastor of Rubyville Community Church, and one of the host evangelists of the 20th Spring Jubilee, said they were honored and elated to have the Mohawks at the Spring Jubilee.

“We were extremely honored to have the Northwest Marching Mohawks from Northwest High School. They performed the National Anthem as well as a “Salute to America’s Finest.” The stage was filled with veterans from all five branches of the military. We were thrilled to have so many there and they deserved this special night in their honor,” Baer said.

Other musical guests added a wonderful spirit of worship to the Jubilee, according to Baer.

“Then the Spring Jubilee Choir joined Karen Peck and New River and the glory of God began to fall. I have never heard the choir sound any better. They have outdone themselves this year,” he said. “As the power of God continued to flow through the building, Karen Peck and New River was obedient to the Spirit. People started coming to the altar to find help and to find Jesus.”

Baer was the featured preacher for Wednesday’s service, with sermon entitled, ‘Nick at Night.’

“I was honored to preach the Gospel last night. My sermon was entitled, ‘Nick at Night.’ Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews came to Jesus at night. But when he saw Christ on the cross, his life changed forever. He truly knew what being born again was all about. When we began to give the invitation. People started to come to the altar and all I can say is — glory,” he said. “One by one, young and old alike were coming to be saved. At the end of service, a total of 24 individuals had given their hearts to Christ. That makes a total of 33 for the week.”

Baer also said they expecting a continued mighty move of God in the last service of the 20th Spring Jubilee, which will be Friday, May 13, at 7 p.m. at the Scioto County Fairgrounds. Gordon Mote will be performing, as well as the Spring Jubilee Choir. Admission is free.
