Summer in the City was capped off with a display of generosity on Sunday, as the final day of festival focused on giving back to Southeast community organizations.

Sunday’s Worship in the City church service drew about 2,500 people to hear Danny Plett and Project Worship, along with a message from Pastor Mark Hughes.

An offering of $9,060 was gathered and will be donated to South East Helping Hands, Soup’s On and Steinbach Community Outreach.

Performances from Christian artists continued throughout the day, with headliner Manic Drive closing out the festival’s final day with an energizing mainstage performance.
