Friday, June 2: 7:00 PM “God Speaks”

When was the last time you felt the Word of God transform you?

Godspeaks is a unique production that will immerse you in the Holy Scriptures. Spend time with Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, and others as we see, feel, hear, and even taste how God speaks in us, to us, and through us, even today. This family friendly production boasts a cast and crew from all over the Southern Territory. It is peppered with a wide array of music, including live performances from an Atlanta area choir and the Southern Territorial Band.

Location: Atlanta Temple Corps

Saturday, June 3: 9:00 AM-Noon Prayer Warriors Seminar

“Prayer is the Christian’s vital breath, The Christian’s native air…” This line from an old hymn only begins to describe how essential it is for us to be people who pray.

Praying is so easy, yet prayer is a difficult discipline to practice. Why? Because our enemy, the devil, does not want us to pray.

All prayer warriors and people who pray are invited to participate in this Seminar designed to ignite and transform their prayer life. Commissioner Debi Bell will lead this session. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that will allow you to move.
