Evening Sacred Prayer Gathering (7:00 PM).
The Bible says, “Pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayer … for all of God’s people” (Ephesians 6:18). So, we are going to do it! The experience will be creative, dynamic, saturated with God’s Word and Spirit-led!”. All who need to receive a word of blessing from the Lord Jesus and/or receive prayer for healing will have opportunity to do so. We anticipate the glory of the Lord to be displayed for the praise of His name!
Worship will be enjoyed in the first service of the host church with the theme “Made to Be” flavouring the morning (9:00 AM). Togetherness honours Jesus. Imagine what will happen as we magnify the Lord. Magnification brings us closer, makes Jesus clearer and bigger. The bigger He gets the less room there is in us for other things!
Following worship, we will re-gather in a space just for “Regional Gather-ers” (10:30 AM). There we will close out our reunion with a time of honouring vocational ministers. Honouring one another includes:
President Raugust will send us off with a charge and anointing unto the assignment of Jesus “to be what we were Made to Be”. We will have lunch together (12:30PM).
