40 Days of Prayer and Preparation Beginning on February 23rd, we will encourage every congregation to pray, fast, and ask God for a burden for the lost. Churches may organize specific prayer groups or teaching or preaching about prayer and fasting or may find other creative Holston ways of preparation. The Witness Team will provide a 40-Day Prayer Guide, which will be daily devotions written by lay and clergy members of our Conference. At this time, we are working on the best delivery of these guides, but at the least we will be e-mailing copies to local church pastors and designated leaders for copying and distribution.

On Friday afternoon, two opportunities will be available for hands-on mission projects in Knoxville. One opportunity will be to provide food baskets to working poor persons through the Salvation Army, and the other opportunity will be to provide homeless packets to persons through Highway and Byway Ministries.When you register, be sure to sign up to participate in one of these ministries and watch the web site for further details.
