Fields of Faith observed in Mesa County

Mesa County Fields of Faith, hosted by Fellowship of Christian Athletes, will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 20 at Colorado Mesa University's Walker Field, at the corner of 12th Street and Orchard Avenue (the soccer field).

"Students and their families from the Grand Valley will be joining thousands of other youth and community members on athletic fields across the nation this October to share their Christian faith with fellow students and community members during the 15th annual national Fields of Faith. This rapidly growing, Christian faith-based event will be held at more than 500 locations throughout the nation and the world," a news release said.

"While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker that creates a spectator event, Fields of Faith is structured as a simple community event for Christians to share their faith with one another through testimony, worship, prayer and through a challenge to us all to read the Bible on a regular basis," the release said.
