The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation at a crossroads. Our purpose is to exalt Christ in prayer and bridge-building community events.
In Joel 2:12, a nation at the crossroads receives a God-provided solution to their need when they are told to "return to Me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning" (contrition and humility). In that day, the command was for everyone to stop what they were doing and gather for a "sacred assembly," to turn to God with prayer and fasting.
"I just want to say thank you so much for organizing this incredible day and allowing GOD to use you to put this event together. I thank GOD for the opportunity and ability to attend this crucial event. I was blessed by the young woman that lead us in worship and the man that facilitated the gathering. May the LORD continue to strengthen and keep you ALL and continue to use you for HIS glory."
Come celebrate Black History month together from 1pm to 4pm, on Saturday, February 25th at the William "Hicks" Anderson Community Center in Wilmington.
The Festival of Hope is a welcoming event that celebrates friendship, acceptance, and bridge building. This year's Festival will feature free clothing and food distribution, live music, and a free soul food dinner as well as a no-charge expungement clinic* and Jobs Fair AND be sure to visit the Community Resource Partner Expo while at the Festival! Our goal is to create a safe space for all members of the community to come together and enjoy a day of celebration and new beginnings.
* Please note that pre-registration is required in order to secure a spot at the expungement clinic, and spaces are limited. We encourage you to sign up right away to ensure you get a spot.

This is a great opportunity for those who have been wanting to clear their criminal records and we look forward to seeing you there!
In praying together, we are reminded that in joining together we are part of something much bigger than simply ourselves—that we are all connected and ultimately responsible for the well-being and strengthening of our communities in Spirit and in deed.
