A tremendous opportunity has been opened to the church of Barrie to lift Jesus high in the heart of our city! The 2nd Annual One Church/One Voice will take place at the 5 points stage at Promenade Days on Sunday July 3rd at 4:00 pm.
Last year our city gave the church one hour of stage time at Promenade Days. The Barrie Christian Council of churches used this time to unite the churches in a worship event called One Church/One Voice. After the rally, which had several hundred attend, the city was impressed that it was one of their largest crowds for the weekend and extended this same time again to the churches of Barrie.
This year we have decided to incorporate prayer with the worship event. For more than 8 years the Barrie Christian Council of churches has been hosting prayer at City Hall once a month for our city, province and nation leaders as 1 Timothy 2:1-4 directs. We have decided to extend this to our event and have a time where we honour those political leaders and pray for them publicly. So far we have MP’s, MPP, Office of Mayor and several councillors confirmed who will be in attendance. In my 20 years working in the city I have not seen a response like this to the church for prayer and support. God is working!
We are asking each of you to let your people know about what God is doing. Let us join together as One Church with One Voice giving glory to our mighty God! We know that where the brethren dwell together in unity that is where the Lord commands the blessing, life forevermore! (Ps 133)
