It’s been asked: “What is a “sacred assembly” and why do we do it?”  Here is a brief explanation!  

A “sacred assembly” is a service that has its focus on prayer.  Last year on memorial day weekend we held one and had different stations in which people read scripture, contemplated, and prayed.  This year we are doing things differently.  The idea of a sacred assembly comes from

Joel 1:14 (NIV) “Declare a holy fast; call a sacred assembly. Summon the elders and all who live in the land to the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD.”    During our service we will be praying for ourselves, our homes, our church, our community, our nation, and our world.  We will be praying for revival!  Sunday we will be having basically an interactive prayer meeting with music mixed in.   Other than those that we have asked beforehand to pray out loud people will not be put on the spot to be pray in front of others.  Sunday‚Äôs

sacred assembly is almost like a concert of prayer.  We have taken the Lord’s Prayer and are breaking it up into the following areas: Exalt, Embrace, Entreat, Examine, Entrench, and Extol.  In each area there will be scripture read, and there will be someone praying.     Every service, we hope, is focused on God but this one intentionally gets more of the congregation involved and helps to get the focus off of ourselves and onto God as we seek revival!  

It is our hope that on this Memorial Day weekend where we remember the men who died so that we can be free that we will also remember the One who died so that we could be truly free!
