REVIVAL at Flint Ridge Baptist Church

PROMISE #6: A Promise Keeper is committed to reaching beyond any racial and denominational barriers to demonstrate the power of biblical unity.

Flint Ridge Baptist Church (Reverend Jerome Drakeford, Senior Pastor) will hold Revival Services Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, August 20-22, 2008, at 7:00 PM nightly. A special youth speaker will be featured on Thursday evening. Flint Ridge is located in northeastern Fayette County at 104 Old Road, facing GA Hwy 85. Reverend Drakeford can be reached at 678-438-0905 or 770-461-8742.

Reverend Drakeford is the current President of the Fellowship of Christian Churches and Friends (FCCF) which is working for unity among the churches and ministries in the South Atlanta area. Additionally, Reverend Drakeford and Brother Bobby Zachery, the men's ministry leader from Flint Ridge, attended the recent Atlanta Promise Keepers Conference with a number of other men from the Fayette County area. They are eager to build relationships with other churches in this area and this week's Revival provides an excellent opportunity for you to meet them and their congregation as well as guests from other area churches. I guarantee that you will be warmly received. (My plan is to be there on Wednesday evening.)

Come help us build Biblical bridges of Brotherhood! Admit it, couldn't you use a little revival, too?

Revival at Bethlehem Baptist Church

Bethlehem Baptist Church will hold Revival Services on Wednesday, August 20th through Friday, August 22nd at 7:30 PM nightly. The guest revivalist for the week will be Reverend Curtis Green of the Greater Liberty Hill Baptist Church in Atlanta.

The Senior Pastor at Bethlehem is Dwight Elder. Pastor Elder and his congregation are members of the Fellowship of Christian Churches and Friends (FCCF) and, as such, are eager to build relationships with other churches in this area. First Lady Annie Elder and some of the women from Bethlehem are regular participants in the Peachtree City Lighthouse for AGLOW, for which I am a spiritual advisor.

Bethlehem is located in Peachtree City at 475 Dividend Drive, near the entrance to Falcon Field. The church phone number is 770-631-0267.

I'm planning to be there myself for Thursday and Friday evening. I have visited Bethlehem at least forty times in the last four years and they treat me like I was one of the family.

Are you bold enough to step out for Jesus Christ in order to build unity in the local body of Christ?
