Discussion and Prayer Meeting Regarding Peace - Thursday July 21st

Below is information on a meeting coming Thursday, and it is related to the recent violence in our nation.  Please plan to attend if you can and pass this on to others. Please let me know if you have any question.  Pastor Rob Connelly from Uptown Church will moderate the meeting.

Discussion and Prayer Meeting Regarding Peace - Thursday July 21st

As Christians we understand that the root cause of all conflict is sin, and the only source of peace - peace with God and peace with each other - is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches us that all human beings are made in God's image, and are therefore worthy of dignity, value, and respect. God has charged the church with being an instrument of God's peace and a reflection of his love in the world. To that end, we are calling on all Christians to pray that God would bring his peace to our community. We are inviting members of local law enforcement to speak briefly to area pastors and others in our community, and then join with us in a time of prayer for our community. We hope that this is just one small step toward healing the brokenness we see around us, and that the brief discussion we have will help create more openness and dialogue.

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 21st, 2016 at 7:00pm, at the facility of Uptown Church, 33 West Main Street in Uptown Martinsville. Following is the agenda:

I. Opening Remarks
II. Brief Comments from Law Enforcement 
(Special guests Martinsville City Police officers as well as Chief Sean Dunn and Henry County Sheriff department deputies)
III. Brief Questions & Answers 
IV. Prayer - all are invited to offer a brief prayer for our community
V. Closing Remarks

Please let me know if I can assist you further.
