Hey gang! Below you can read a press release about an amazing event I have coming next weekend. Many of you may have already heard about it, but I felt like I was supposed to extend the invitation beyond just those in my home county. If you are able to make it out for any portion of the weekend, please do. This is not your “usual lock-in,” but an intense time of seeking the face of God on behalf of a region. Thanks for reading on. And Happy New Year to all of you! ch:
(Click here or on image for high resolution 4×5 Flyer) Watertown, NY / 01.03.09: JANUARY 9th-11th 2009 @ New Life Christian Church: Join us for 36 hours of prayer and fasting hosted by 33 Live in conjunction with Faith Fellowship Watertown as teens from all over the region come together to seek the Lord in worship. Various worship teams will rotate through harp-and-bowl style worship and intercession, while a handful of leaders will lead directed times of prayer, others preaching encouraging messages to move the time forward.
From 7pm-9pm on Friday the 9th, the event will kick off with a county-wide prayer meeting where all churches are invited to attend. Then from 9pm to past midnight, the teens, leaders, and any adults wishing to stay, will continue in a time of seeking God’s face. After some sleep early Saturday morning, the remainder of the day will involve strategic prayer for each of Jefferson County’s towns, leadership, and schools, including travel to and from strategic prayer points in the region. The 36 hours will conclude Sunday morning at 7am, giving people time to return to their home churches for Sunday morning service. Finally, as a special conclusion, we will be finishing this powerful weekend with a county-wide Unity Service at Faith Fellowship Watertown Sunday evening at 6:30pm.
The youth will be sleeping at the church with ample adult supervision in accordance with a lock-in style weekend. They are asked to bring their Bibles, sleeping bags, pillows, clothes, and deodorant. No, seriously. Water and juice will be provided. As this is a serious time of intercession and seeking God, a spiritual practice which requires a lot of self-discipline, we ask that parents and leaders be up front with interested youth to let them know this is not for the faint of heart, spiritually or physically.
There is no fee for the event, nor do you need to sign up. Just show up. You and/or your group may come for as little or as much of the event as you are able. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the NLCC at: 315.788.0825
