On Sunday, June 31st, we held our annual 5th Sunday Evening ZOE District Fellowship. Our leaders, Superintendent Terence A. Merritt, M.D. and District Missionary Evelyn Foster called us together for a time of refreshing that would leave you wanting MORE! You had to be there to experience it. Then Bishop Anthony Gilyard took to the platform to release a powerful word entitled "Destinations, Delays and Detours" from Exodus 32:1-4. After the message, two boldly professed their Christian Faith and were baptized in water. As customary on 5th Sunday evenings, we also dined at the Lord's table in Holy Communion.
Every 5th Sunday we give away $1000 to a tither to go towards Debt Cancellation. We randomly pick someone and bless their life. We've done this for over a year now and it has proven to be a benefit to our membership. This quarter, our winner was Karen Walker who went home with a check for $1000. Here's a little coverage from that service. Enjoy.
Nothing is more influential in shaping and molding our world than a yielded vessel to carry the message of Christ’s hope and deliverance for all. These attributes are found in Pastor/Evangelist Anthony W. Gilyard. He has been chosen to usher in a dynamic and powerful move of God. Like Nehemiah, he is not afraid of the assignment God has put in his hands to accomplish. His burning vision to see the lives of all mankind transformed by the revelation of God’s word is evident in his commitment to ministry and his lifestyle of holiness.
Seven years after traveling as a full time Evangelist, God compelled him to step into a new dimension of service to the office of Pastor. In November 2002, he obeyed the voice of God and established Bethlehem-Judah Christian Fellowship also known as “the House of Bread and Praise”. Our objective is to become a spiritual entry point for God and the Angelic hosts to reach the Northeast corridor of America.
Bishop Gilyard is no stranger to the LIFE Church. Join us this Sunday, June 30th at 10am and 6pm as we experience the ministry of Bishop Anthony Gilyard. You don't want to miss this powerful worship encounter.
