Peak Community Church to Rock the River Saturday

Praise and worship music, uplifting word and prayer will fill the skies

Praise and worship music, uplifting spoken word, prayer and rejoicing will fill the air and spread throughout Peekskill and the surrounding area Saturday, October 28 when the Peak Community Church presents “Rock the River” at the Riverfront Green in Peekskill from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Robert Lindenberg, lead pastor of the Peak Community Church says, “Rock the River will be a fun filled day filled with live worship, prayer, kid activities, giveaways, vendors, food trucks, and much more.” 

This family friendly event is free and attendees are encouraged to be prepared to sing, dance, rejoice and have fun. There will be a variety of family friendly things to do throughout the day. Lindenberg says this about the event, “Live music will be provided from a variety of worship teams, individual musicians, and tracks. There will be some spoken word and evangelistic messages. Younger guests will be encountered by Lil Kings & Queens Party Patrol, Fire Truck Sound System and Mobile Arcade. There will be balloon art, face painting, and temporary tattoos.  Food vendors and food trucks include  Jeremiah’s Hot Dog’s, the Waffle Truck, Wrappers Delight, the Dog House, just to name a few. The Peak Community Church and Pastor Lindenberg hope that by the end of the event, people who attend “Rock the River” will walk away with a greater sense of community and a closer relationship with Christ. 

This is the first time the Peak Community Church will host the event. “Rock the River” was an idea that started out many months ago and required lots of planning. We always had a desire to host a Community Event that would be a fun filled event for the whole family. When we began the process of filling out application forms with fees, securing proper sound equipment and working the the city’s Parks and Recreation department we came to the conclusion that it’s better to “go big,” said Lindenberg. And big is exactly what this event will be as they expect hundreds of worshippers from the area to be in attendance.
