Hey friends, I’m hijacking my tumblr to help pass along important info to my church family at City Fellowship. Apologies if I got your hopes up that I had finally gotten around to posting birthday party pics for Liam & Abbey. I promise I’ll make it up to you.

Subject: Urgent schedule information from City Fellowship
We have just received word about an opportunity that we don’t want to miss. This Sunday (April 22), the Mentoring Coalition of Jackson is holding a prayer rally in response to a recent upswing in gang activity and violence aimed at our cities youth. After looking into this event, we found The Mentoring Coalition to be an organization with a heartbeat very similar to that of City Fellowship, and this prayer rally to be something we felt we couldn’t miss..
As luck would have it the rally falls right at the start time for our church meeting.. But it just didn’t feel right for us to be holding our own worship service, with so many of our brothers and sisters of like mind praying together within walking distance of our building! So we felt compelled by the Holy Spirit to join them, in spite of the disruption to our usual schedule.. So we have made some adjustments. Here is the plan:
All 3:00 events will not take place this Sunday
We will meet at City Hall (101 East Main St.) at 3:30 pm., and pray along side our brothers and sisters (see the attached email below to learn more about the event itself).
After the rally we will walk back to our Church building and have a shortened service that will hopefully help set the goals of the prayer rally deep in our hearts
Please note that childcare will be provided once we are back at the building, but not for the rally itself (which is scheduled to run from 3:30-4:30)
Also note that, in case of rain, we will meet at the City Fellowship building at our usual 4:00 meeting time
We recognize that this has all come up very last minute.. We just received this information ourselves, and we knew it would probably be more prudent to maintain our normal schedule, given the late notice. But, as many of you know, the Lord has been at work among us lately concerning the very issues this rally is concerned with. We felt it would be important for us to put “feet on our faith”, and show that we literally are standing with our sister churches against the work of the Devil in our town..
We expect this to be an important day, so we urge you strongly to be there! Thank you for being flexible!
God be with us all..
