Central Christian Church hosting community event


Several years ago, Central Christian Church in Seymour organized One Night/One Light, a praise and revival event to bring people together and closer to God.

This year, the event is three nights — Friday, Saturday and Sunday — and the location has changed to attract more people from the community.

Instead of being conducted at a church, Three Nights/One Light will take place outdoors under tents at Freedom Field, the large open area where three crosses are prominently displayed on Marley Lane off of East Oak Street.

The event features speakers, Christian bands and praise teams and activities. It is free and open to the public. Several local churches are involved.

Friday will be a Spanish/English night from 7 to 9 p.m. with Pastor Gustavo Vasquez from Calvary Baptist Church and Pastor Gary Dyer from Seymour Harvest Church preaching. The praise team from Calvary Baptist will provide the music.

Crothersville First Baptist Church and praise team will lead worship on Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. There will be children’s activities and food. Former Seymour resident and artist Matt Koerner will give a message through an inspirational painting demonstration at 5:45 and 7 p.m.

Local Christian rock bands Driven and Emberton also will perform Saturday night.

Sunday’s closing night will be from 6 to 8 p.m. and will be led by Pastor Jon Carlstrom of Central Christian Church and the church’s praise team.

Virginia Goben and her husband, Brent Goben, are members of Central Christian Church and are spearheading the event.

“We thought by having it off the church campus, it would draw in a bigger variety of people,” Virginia said. “This is a community event and not just about one church.”

The purpose of Three Nights/One Light is unity, she said.

“We want to unite and bring together the churches of Seymour, to bring people that don’t know Jesus so that they know about him and his love and to those who do know Jesus,” she said. “We want to minister to everyone.”

The event is expected to draw around 300 people, but Virginia said she would love to see even more.

“The more, the merrier,” she said.
