The Mount Calvary Church celebrated the cultural diversity of its congregation with by conducting its annual International Weekend, which was held on Saturday April 28 -29.

As a people, we believe that individuals from every race, country, and social status in life are created in the image of God and have been endowed with unique talents, skills and capabilities, said one church member. International weekend is our most comprehensive display of this philosophy as we ensure that each of the 29 different countries represented within our congregation is featured and celebrated throughout the weekend.

Hubert Morel Jr., president of the Southeastern Conference, was the featured speaker for Divine Worship Service, which began with a Parade of flags and nations as participants proudly represented their countries dressed in native garb.Not to be left out, participating Americans dressed in red, white and blue ensembles reminiscent of an Olympic delegation.

The Combined Choirs of Mt. Calvary also dressed in national attire led the music worship experience. Featured songs included Lets Just Praise the Lord sung in English, Spanish and French and Love in any Language where choir members waved mini international flags as they sang. The Praise Team continues worship in song featuring a medley of Gospel Caribbean music including I Got My Mind Made Up and I Want to Know If You Love My Jesus.

The International Weekend Program provides a platform for individuals and groups to represent their culture and share their various backgrounds and talents in a variety of forums.

The weekend concluded with a cultural concert and an International Food Fair. Concert artist included: Kuumba Drummer and Dancers, Indian Gospel Sensation- Padmaja Medidi, the Buchanan Family, and Mary Lois- Native American Flutist.
