Our Wish for the Weekend!
We trust that you are enjoying this great weekend of good ol' gospel music. It's wonderful music isn't it?
BUT, it's message is even greater.
We pray that you are drawn closer to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through these songs. We would like to encourage you to find a church where you are comfortable to attend. There are also some great fellowship groups around. A perfect example is THE ALPHA PROGRAM.
The New Brunswick Gospel Music Festival, now celebrating its 28th year, was originally known as the Rusagonis Gospel Music Festival, formed as a New Brunswick bicentennial project. The first festival took place on the grounds of the Orange Lodge in Rusagonis, later moving to the Rusagonis Rec Centre and finally in 1997 moved to our permanent location on the grounds of the Rusagonis United Baptist Church.
Throughout the years, our Festival has continued to spread God's word through song and personal testimony. All who attend have expressed how much they have been blessed.
A good mix of music, both contemporary and country gospel, has always been enjoyed by all with groups and individuals coming from NB, NS and the State of Maine. Some of the participants in the first festival will once again this year be providing musical entertainment.
Rough camping has always been available and each year individuals come with their trailers, tents and motor homes to spend the weekend at "The 'Gornish". Everyone enjoys themselves and look forward to returning each year to renew acquaintances and make new friends as they gather around the nightly campfire.
Throughout the years the local Mens and Ladies Orange Lodge have been there to provide canteen services and to serve good, home-style country suppers on Saturday and Sunday evenings, providing a wonderful time of fellowship.
