24 Hours of Prayer

The purpose of the 24 hour prayer event is for God’s people to be in unity as we petition the Lord to reveal His plans and purposes for us personally and as a body of believers. We will gather together to give thanks to the Lord for all He has done in our lives and in our church. We are grateful for the “Promise Of Home” and that He chose to plant us in illuminate Church, for such a time as this! I Thessalonians 5: 16-18

 We would love to have you join us, for our 24 hours of prayer at our offices (1134 Celebration Blvd., Celebration, FL 34747) beginning Friday, February 1 at 3:00PM and concluding on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 3:00PM. This will be a great way to spend time together as a church, as we worship the Lord and begin to conclude our 21 days of prayer and fasting.

No registration is required to attend the event, however a sign-up sheet will be at the tables in the breezeway Sunday, January 27, 2019. Please be aware childcare is not provided.

The Send

We are calling 60,000 people on Saturday, February 23, 2019 to Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL for a tipping point gathering to help spark the greatest era of evangelism and missions in history. This free event is open to the public and will be a day of activation and training to go and live the gospel.

Outreaches across Orlando will precede and follow the stadium day giving people a practical opportunity to share their faith and minister to those in need. Online platforms will also be unveiled to help people find missions opportunities and engage with further evangelistic trainings and activities.

From The Send we are believing for each participant to commit to adopt one of four “Mission Fields” - Universities, High Schools, Neighborhoods or Nations, and to commit to a season of focused prayer for America and the nations. The vision is to see a national campaign launched catalyzing every believer into a lifestyle of Christ-like action.

Take part in this significant moment of U.S. history, along with: Reinhard Bonnke & Daniel Kolenda - Christ for All Nations, Loren & Darlene Cunningham – Youth With A Mission, Steve Douglass – Campus Crusade for Christ, Francis Chan, Claudio Freidzin - King of Kings Church, Bill Johnson - Bethel Church, Lou Engle - The Call, Todd White – Power & Love, Michael Koulianos – Jesus Image, Hillsong United, Lindy & The Circuit Riders, and many others who will gather together this day!

God made us for community and we truly function better together. Join us as we break out of our routines to receive something more, dig deeper into God’s Word, and pursue Christ together. This retreat is just the beginning of the sisterhood that awaits.

I Need Jesus

I Need Jesus

Do you have any friends in your life who don’t know Jesus? Maybe a neighbor. Or a co-worker. Or a friend from your book club. Are you regularly praying for those friends to come to know Jesus? Are you loving them the way He would? Or inviting them to church? Think about these four friends who were willing to do whatever it took to get their friend to Jesus. Chances are, the person you’re thinking about isn’t someone who needs physical healing. But that doesn’t mean he or she doesn’t need Jesus just as much. Our friends need Jesus. Who do you need? [Bottom Line] I need Jesus.

Christmas Choir

This year our Christmas Choir will play a very important role in our Christmas Eve Service. You will sing two songs - He Shall Reign Forevermore by Chris Tomlin, & Silent Night. 

You do NOT have to sing to be a part. If you can sing a part (bass, tenor, alto, soprano... etc), then please do. But, all we ask is that you are willing sing and worship the Lord. 

We will have practice the Saturday before the event (Dec. 22nd) from 1pm-2pm. Then you will sing at the 3pm service, and then again at the 6pm service. 

If you would like to be a part of this event, we ask you to commit to singing in BOTH SERVICES.

Here are details and links to the songs we will be singing:

He Shall Reign Forevermore - The choir will walk onto the platform when the Bridge to the song begins and begin to sing on "into our hopes, into our fears..." They will sing the rest of the song with us.

The choir will exit platform, walk to the back... after vid...

Silent Night - Pentatonix - / This is the version we will be doing / The Choir will wait until the end of 1st verse to come down both isles - The choir will sing verse 2 through the rest of the song. More details will be given at practice on Saturday, Dec. 22nd.
