In light of the upcoming General Conference session that will take place in the Lake Union next year, the purpose of the event is to invite everyone in the Lake Union to pray in a united way for the Holy Spirit. It is recommended that, at the very least, two delegates designated by the church board come, along with their pastor. The main person we are inviting to be present is the Holy Spirit. We will have short messages on prayer by individuals such as Jerry and Janet Page, Melody Mason and Mark Finley. However, the primary purpose is not only to listen to speakers but to take time to pray. The early bird rate is $55 The early bird rate is $55 and registration is extended to December 17! This fee covers attendance at the meeting, lunch, hors d'oeuvres served at the close of the meeting, and a 40-day devotional book that is specifically designed for this event.
