Kaye Baumgartner helped to coordinate the event the first year with collaboration from fellow members of St. Paul Lutheran Church. "As I remerhber it, after the first year, we started inviting other churches to join us, Now there are seven churches involved in organizing the event. It is a gathering together of the faith community to share worship and fellowship," said Baumgartner.

"You don't have to be a member of any particular church to attend. The event is really for the community at large and all are welcome. In fact, there are vacationers who come from Crescent Bar each year," said Baumgartner. Worship in the Park takes place on Aug. 22 from 10 a.m. until early afternoon on the west end of East Park in Quincy.
