It’s a community event for the entire family, offering fun, faith, food, and information, and it’s all free. It’s called Praise Beyond The Walls, a bi-yearly event started ten years ago by the Bethlehem Star Baptist Church, 2704 N.E. 24th Street.

It’s a community event for the entire family, offering fun, faith, food, and information, and it’s all free.

It’s called Praise Beyond The Walls, a bi-yearly event started ten years ago by the Bethlehem Star Baptist Church, 2704 Northeast 24th Street.

“We found that the community had a lot of needs that were going unmet, but we had a lot of resource providers who had resources left over,” said Rodney Payne, pastor of Bethlehem Star Baptist Church.

Everything from medical resources, employment resources, family restoration, and even food availability.

“There are people who provide all of that stuff for the city and for this quad ram in particular but resources go unused,” said Payne.

It all starts with employment. “Tomorrow morning at ten am we start off with the resume prep, so if you don’t have a resume and you need help with that come and get that done, we have professional help for both civilian and government employees,” said PBTW program coordinator Danielle Adams.

Come dressed to impress because once your resume is done, there is a job fair from two to six.

Friday is a leadership conference and youth explosion with Saturday jam-packed. “Free health checks, we have the community action health center coming out, the Oklahoma City police department, the Urban League,” said Adams.

There will also be food trucks, lots of fun for the kids, and praise under the big tent. As well as a marriage conference and a movie night.

“You just come we’ll take care of the movie and the popcorn,” said Payne.

“I think that people need to know that this is not just a church function, not just an outdoor carnival, it’s both of those things and it will equip and help you become the best version of yourself,” said Payne.

Again, everyone is invited, and participation is free. For more information and specific conference times, visit www.praisebeyondthewalls.org
