Over 200 people gathered together at The Anchor Church on Saturday to watch a gospel concert in honor of Black History Month. The Anchor Church hosted "The Community of Voices" concert which featured nine groups from different local churches throughout Zanesville.

"We are hosting a special for Black History Month, most of the local churches have gathered to celebrate and they’re here putting on a concert to celebrate Black History Month," Minister of Music, Jay McHenry said.

Some of the local churches who performed were St. Paul A.M.E., The First United Pentecostal Church, and Aposolic Christian Church. Food and drinks were available to guests while they put aside their differences to rejoice and pray together.

"We’re hoping that it unifies us all together, of course to celebrate and magnify the Lord and that’s what we’ve come to do today, and hopefully it brings us all together," McHenry said.

If you missed Saturday’s concert, The Anchor Church will be hosting another gospel concert. For more information, you can contact them at
