Protesting against violence through music

Posted: Updated:
A Millville church is trying to bring the community together, and protest against violence and they are using music to communicate their message.

The First Assembly of God held a free concert at the Captain Buck Riverfront Park in Millville Saturday afternoon in hopes to rally the community together and speak out against the recent violence that has been occurring in the city.

After a double homicide in May, Pastor Joe Green, an organizer of the concert, says his goal is to reach out to the youth of the city and stress the importance of living a violent-free lifestyle.

"There's been a lot of violence over the last several weeks. We're just trying to bring the community together and just have a good time. We have some free food and face painting for the kids and some give away prizes. Just take a break and get our minds off all of the violence that has been going on."

The live music featured a Christian artist with lyrics that focused on anti-violence.
