This Sunday marks the 15th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the USA.
Pastor Jay Wynn of Rivers of Life Christian Fellowship in Sonora was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day.
There will be a special event called the “One Voice Worship Celebration” this Sunday morning at 10 AM in the Sierra Building at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds.
“One Voice” is an alliance of churches and organizations in Tuolumne County that include: Sonora Regional Medical Center, Chapel in the Pines, Country Cowboy Church, New Life Lighthouse, Rivers of Life Christian Fellowship, Sonora United Methodist Church, South Hills Community Church and Word of Life Fellowship.
According to Wynn, “The theme for this event is “An Appeal To Heaven” as stated by George Washington, who as commander in chief of the Continental Army in October 1775, commissioned a flag bearing that phrase to be flown by six squadrons. It was a symbol of this nation’s dependence upon Almighty God to accomplish all that was being planned in the birth of this nation.”
Wynn continued, “On this fifteenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on our nation and with all that is facing this nation with the elections, economic down turn and trouble, the threat of terror attacks, and the general condition of our nation, we as Pastors deem that it is time to come together as churches and declare our unity in Christ and call our churches to pray for our nation. As a counter to the death and destruction our nation faces, we will be raising funds to help support the new lives coming into this world through the ministry of Foothill Pregnancy Center.”
The guest speaker is Pastor Woody Barnett. As a full time pastor and missionary for over 52 years, Pastor Barnett has served parishes in Ohio and Pennsylvania and has served as the Prayer Pastor for Covenant Church of Pittsburgh. He has served as a missionary to many countries throughout the world. From Nigeria to Austria, Berlin to Morocco his emphasis has been in the area of “on site” intercession. Domestically, Pastor Woody has served as an intercessor with Senator Sam Brownback’s prayer team in Washington, DC.
The public is invited to bring a lunch or buy a fundraiser luau lunch hosted by Sonora United Methodist Church, with the proceeds going to Foothill Pregnancy Center.
