Hurricane Laura has wrought devastation in Louisiana and in East Texas, where tens of thousands of our members worship in hundreds of our UPCI churches. We are a body that cares deeply about one another, and we ask for your help.
We live in difficult days. A chief concern is the growing threat to religious liberty. Churches are on the frontline of a spiritual battle and under increasing attack. We witness a rising tide of laws and regulations dealing with sexual orientation, gender identity, abortion on demand, and restrictions to worship and ministry.
Sunday, August 9 has been designated as the National Day of Prayer for Religious Liberty. In preparation, the World Network of Prayer is calling for three days of prayer and fasting on August 4-6. During this period, please pray for our nation, its leadership, and the upcoming election.
The General Board has decided to change the 2020 General Conference to an online format in September. We will be providing more information soon. If you have made hotel reservations you should cancel them.
As the United States of America celebrates Independence Day and as Canada has just celebrated Canada Day, I urge all of us to pray for our nations and our world. The United States and Canada have been blessed with liberty and prosperity. A significant reason is that our nations were founded on biblical values. Consequently, God has used our nations to help spread the gospel around the world.
We anticipate business as usual for General Conference 2020 with minimal impact due to COVID-19 restrictions. The State of Missouri has removed all statewide COVID-19 restrictions, and local authorities are expected to relax their restrictions.
During a worldwide pandemic and social turmoil, the church continues to have revival. For the Day of Pentecost, the UPCI offered special online services in English and Spanish. To date, we have received the following reports:
The UPCI Strategic Growth Initiative and the UPCI Evangelist Ministry are partnering to produce online worship services for Pentecost Sunday. These services will be available in both English and Spanish at 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM, Eastern Daylight Time, Sunday, May 31, 2020.
The UPCI has thousands of churches across the United States and Canada. This Church and Ministry Locator will assist you in finding a local congregation as well as Bible colleges, campgrounds, and district offices.
