THERE is an atmosphere of real excitement and anticipation in the air as the Ministers and congregation of Ballymoney Church of God prepare for their first ever Big Tent – 4 night Crusade.
Pastor Jonathan Payne remarked “It has taken real team-work of sub-groups organising Catering, Children’s Ministry, Worship, Sound, Lighting, Security and Car-Parking, to name but a few.”
Each evening during the Crusade there will be lively praise and worship along with the preaching of the Gospel.
Ballymoney Church of God have always had a passion for the community and want to use this Crusade to touch the very heart of their town.
Pastor Jonathan also added that “over the years the Church of God has donated tens of thousands of pounds to help with Gospel Crusades all over the World. I feel strongly that now is the time to reach the mission field on our very own doorstep! As Scripture tells us; “The fields are ripe onto harvest.”
This is the first ever Churches of God in Ireland tent Crusade. The huge big-top tent will be arriving this coming Friday so that everything will be ready for Sunday evening’s opening night.
Pastor Yvonne Payne said: “Over these past few months God’s hand has been upon the whole project, as doors of opportunity have opened for us to achieve this God given plan and vision for Ballymoney Church of God. Our aim is to impact our Town and wider community with the message of Christ through both word and song.”
The Big tent Crusade will be open to everyone both young and old, all church affiliations and of course the ‘un-churched’ too!
Ballymoney Church of God’s own singers and musicians will be taking park along with guest singing group REVELATION and local LET’S SING GOSPEL CHOIR.
On the final night (Wednesday), an offering will be received for Cheers Community Youth Centre – a charity that does exceptional work amongst the young people of our Town.
Pastor Edward Taylor said: “Everyone over these past few weeks has not just been preparing practically for this great event, but also prayerfully. My greatest desire is to see God move by His Spirit, touching lives, changing hearts, saving souls and bringing healing and wholeness.”
The people of Ballymoney Church of God warmly invite you to come and be part of what promises to be four nights of Preaching, Praise, Prayer, Music and Worship that will glorify God and extend His Kingdom.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed.”
