Worship nights are common. Prayer nights are common. But a healing night? Where did that come from? It came from three different things the Lord has been working with us in. We have felt called to pursue the Lord in areas where He does the ministry, not us. People today crave an encounter with God and they crave His power, His touch, and His love.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
COME WORSHIP WITH US!
Our Worship Team will represent Citywide churches
Each of us are aware of the need in our communities for God's people to come together, following the promise of 2 Chronicles 7:14, to call on the power of the Holy Spirit to bring healing to our land. On Friday, September 11th from 7:00-9:00 pm, we'll have an amazing opportunity to do precisely that.
At this special event, A Call To Prayer, we will be seeking God's miracles of healing for not just our communities, but for our churches, our pastors, our families and those who are struggling physically, emotionally and spiritually.
As the host church of this event, Peoples Church cordially invites each of you as senior pastors and your congregations across our cities of Fresno/Clovis, to join us for this most meaningful event.
Dale Oquist, Pastor
When we pray we invite the involvement, intervention and power of God into our lives and into the lives of those we are praying for.
I don't think any of us would disagree that our community, our state, our nation, our congregants, and we need the involvement, intervention and power of God in our lives like never before. It is for this reason that I want to personally invite you to A Call to Prayer on Friday evening, September 11th.
It is our prayer that the majority of congregations and pastors will gather together as The Church of Fresno/Clovis to seek God's miracles in our congregations, in our community, and in our individual lives.
With great expectations,
Bob Willis, Pastor
Northpark Community Church
In a time when our society seems to be getting more corrupt and complex by the day, our God remains constant, immovable, and irrefutable. And like the saints of every era, we may cry out to Him with humble expectation, repentant, hopeful and confident that we are heard. How beautiful it is when we gather as a community and seek the Lord's intervention! Will He not command a blessing?
Would you as senior pastors and your congregants consider joining us on this very special night of A Call To Prayer?

Worship / Prayer / Healing
Men and women of God across our community are invited to join in a special gathering of believers on Friday, September 11th at Peoples Church.
This Call To Prayer, focuses on a unified time of seeking God's face, worship, repentance, prayer for the needs of our community and prayer for the sick.
We know what God requires of us, as evidenced by
2 Chronicles 7:14; "If my people, called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face,and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear their prayers from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land."
We believe we will see a mighty move of God's hand upon our city. We also believe he'll bring healing to our churches, family relationships, and even our physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
As we prepare our hearts, we invite you to join in a time of fasting from August 21st to September 11th. For more info and to sign up as an individual, church or group, contact:

Hurt - We are hurting. We have a large amount of folks suffering through life altering and life threatening diseases in addition to debilitating mental illnesses and the effects the recession has played on the economy and their ability to provide for their families. As shepherds of our local flock, we're tired of seeing our people hurting. We believe God heals today and we believe we are partly responsible for the health of His body (James 5:14,15) Therefore we designed a night where we, as leadership and the body of Christ, lift up the hurting. We'll bring every need before our Father in Heaven and ask, "Lord, if you are willing, may we be healed?"
Unification of the Region - We are experiencing unity within the leadership of the body of Christ in this region. God has knit our hearts together as brothers and sisters and we continue to press into Him and seek His will for the whole Fresno region. The vision for this night of unified worship, prayer and healing is another way to come together and give glory to God as an entire body.
