From the Bishop

Bishop ReevesFall Consecration
Bishop E.V. Reeves
 
Greeting family and friends, I greet you in Jesus joy.  We are heading into the next season of the calendar year as well as into the New Jewish Year.  I honestly believe that God is up to something BIG.  My word to you all is to increase your capacity to receive, for greater is coming.
 
The Jews observed many special days and consecrated them as holy unto the Lord. Two of these special days on the Jewish calendar are Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kipper. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish Feast of Trumpets and this year it begins at sundown on Sunday evening September 13th and last through Tuesday, September 15th.  During this celebration, Jews reflect on both the year that has just passed and also look forward to the year to come. There are two special elements of Rosh Hashanah. The first element is the eating of apple slices dipped in honey which symbolizes the hope that the coming year will be "sweet." The second element is the blowing of the shofar (a ram's horn) to announce the coming of the New Year in a memorable way.  Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the 10-day period leading up to the celebration of Yom Kipper (the Day of Atonement).
 
Yom Kippur falls on September 23rd this year. It is a time to celebrate the atoning power of the blood of Jesus that satisfied the penalty for sin forever and is marked by a time of prayer for repentance. During this season I am calling The Life to a corporate time of fasting and praying. We will fast for three days from 6 am to 6 pm beginning on Monday, September 21st through Wednesday, September 23rd. We will consume only juice and water during these times. Our prayer focus will be for families, the lost souls and our breakthrough in wealth.
 
So let us come on one accord, as we believe God together for all the great things that he has promised us.
 
Happy New Year!

You are invited to join Bishop Reeves, anointed pastors, and the missions' team for this in-country missions ministry trip to Kenya & Rwanda (Kigali) November 24 - December 6, 2015. The trip Includes: Airfare, Double Occupancy Hotel Room and Local Transportation $4,000 per person.
 
If you are interested in being a part of this life-changing trip be sure to download information from our website on costs, travel requirements and payment due dates or email globalmissions@thelifedc.org
 
If you are unable to make the trip but have a heart to change lives, make a donation to one of our
 
 CURRENT MISSION'S PROJECTS:
 
The Well Project - Clean Water for Kenya
The current crisis that Kenya faces is providing clean water to its population. Currently the children that we support live in a village where fresh water is not readily available. Can you imagine having to walk 10 miles several times a day just to fetch enough water to live? Our goal is to put a well in the center of this village.
 
My Own Bed - Cots for Kenya and Uganda Orphanages
The ability to sleep in a warm comfortable bed at night is something that many take for granted. By donating to this project, you will give the children in the orphanages that we sponsor in both Kenya and Uganda a bed to call their own.
 
Nepal Earthquake Relief Project
The 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Nepal a few months ago killed more than 8,000 people and left more than 2 million homeless and many children orphaned. We are currently providing support for one of the newly created orphanages in Nepal. Your donations will also help provide: Tents, Water Purifying Tablets; Blankets; and Food.

Fit & Healthy Header

9/19 HEALTH MINISTRY MEETING

This month the Health ministry will begin a series on the Power of Rest. Society views busyness as a sign of success, but in the Kingdom, Christ promises to give us rest and repeatedly invites us to enter into His rest. Busyness always competes with our awareness of the presence of God. Resting is an act of faith. When we trust God enough to dwell in a place of rest, our souls are restored, our bodies are healed and our spirits are revived. Join us Saturday, September 19th 10am-12pm @ The Life.  Topics include:
  • Supernatural sleep: God owns the night
  • The importance of rest to your health
  • Still striving?: Winning the battle through rest
  • Becoming a resting place
