I have attached an invitation to a special upcoming program that we (our church) are conducting May 7th -9th 2009. This program and special services are designed to uncover and reveal the incluturation issues that our youth are experiencing and to break down those boarders and barriers, both spiritually and naturally. The areas that will be focused on in these 3 days will be homosexuality, teen promiscuity & violence, hip-hop inculturation, clergy sexual abuse, and reconstruction of the family through Christ.
I have called two of my best friends in to assist us and deliver the necessary information required to address issues with our families and youth in particular. My guests are Elder D. L. Foster of Atlanta Ga. and Elder G. Craige Lewis of Arlington, TX. Both of these men are first, tremendous men of God, nationally known, have a message pertinent to the current struggles of our youth within society. They have been extensively published in many major Christian magazines and are appearing in Peoria for the first time ever. We are looking for an intensely spiritual and Christ centered fellowship and service.
We are encouraging youth groups, ministers and leaders of all denominations and organizations to attend and support this meeting. As you know, we are facing what I consider to be an epidemic of moral and social decay within our society in general and Peoria is not exempt.
Unfortunately, the second murder of the year, Lonnie Williams, was a relative of a long time member of our church and was killed without provocation and senselessly blindly. I believe that this is our opportunity to change minds and deliver souls through the power of Christ. Will you support and assist us and me personally in this effort?
Please plan to be in attendance if possible. Your presence and participation in this event will be a great blessing and I believe you will find the information a valuable resource as you minister to youth who are experiencing and facing what we will be dealing with.
There will be a freewill offering taken at each service to help address the expenses and ad space is currently available in our souvenir booklet if you would like make your ministry wishes known. Please call or email me for full details. Thank you so much for your prayers, consideration and participation.
