BEMIDJI — On Sunday, June 5, believers and churches in the area will set aside denominational, ethnical and political differences and unite with a march to celebrate Jesus beyond the church walls and into the streets.

Participants will gather at noon at JW Smith Elementary School, 1712 America Ave. NW, and proceed across several city blocks, ending at Paul Bunyan Park. There, they will conclude the evening with prayer and music.

“The March for Jesus is a procession of praise through the streets of the city celebrating the Lordship of Jesus Christ and uniting in a grand worship event where Christians publicly proclaim the glory of the savior,” a release said. “It’s all about Jesus — and nothing else.”

Timothy Pomp, local pastor and march organizer, emphasized that the march is not a protest and everyone, regardless of domination, is welcome to participate.

“We don’t want to be anything except for a voice lifting up Jesus,” Pomp said in the release.

As a national mission, the March for Jesus 2022 will take place in multiple cities across the U.S. and around the world. This year, the theme for the march is “Jesus Is Love,” drawn from 1 John 4:10.

The event is free and open to the public, and everyone, not just those of Christian faith, are welcome to attend.
