First Assembly of God - Crystal River, Florida

Christmas Parade Outreach

The Christmas Parades for both the city of Crystal River & the city of Inverness includ a wonderful witness for the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Since 2004, we have been entering the parade under the name “Standing in the Gap” in memorial of Jimmy Sheets who went to be with Jesus several years ago. Jimmy had a vision to see 50 white crosses walking down the street to proclaim Jesus to our community. Since then, many have teemed up with us such as the Gideon’s passing out Bibles, a worship team on the float, and a team of helpers to carry crosses & pass out  Gospel Tracts. Every year, the Gideon’s place thousadands of New Testament Bibles in the hands of the people watching the parade in both cities.

The participation has grown enormously over the years. Provisions are made to help people of all ages and health to participate.
