Secret Church 2019
Apr

to Apr 27

Secret Church 2019

What is Secret Church?

Each Spring, our church joins countless other churches and believers across the globe for Secret Church. Secret Church looks like a "house church" gathering with an intense time of Bible study - lasting 6+ hours - and including a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the gospel (http://secretchurch.radical.net/secret-church/).

Each Secret Church location streams live teaching from David Platt that includes video presentations of how to pray for the persecuted. This year's teaching is “Prayer, Fasting, and the Pursuit of God.” The live presentation will take place on Friday, April 26th from 7pm until 1am EST. You can sign up to attend Secret Church at the bottom of this page. Want a quick description? Watch this video: https://vimeo.com/298167660

More About the Topic: Prayer, Fasting, and the Pursuit of God

We were created to know and enjoy God, and to depend on Him for our every need. Sadly, though, we often look to the things of this world to satisfy us, and we are constantly tempted to rely on ourselves rather than on God’s wisdom and power.

In Secret Church 19, we’ll see that all of Scripture invites us to pursue God, and we’ll see how crucial the role of prayer and fasting is in this pursuit. Beginning in Genesis and moving all the way through Revelation, David Platt shows us that God has designed prayer and fasting not only to meet our daily needs but more importantly so that we might find greater intimacy and satisfaction in Him. We’ll also see the critical role of prayer and fasting in carrying out the mission Christ gave to His church—to make disciples of all nations.

Where will it be hosted?

This year, Brad and Cat Kinney will be hosting Secret church at their house located in Watkinsville at: 1121 Spring Hill Ct, Watkinsville, GA 30677

We will be hosting many attendees, so be prepared for a setting similar to an authentic persecuted church—a small, intimate space with many people. That said, PLEASE pay close attention to your email leading up to the event as important details will be shared—namely, carpooling since space will be limited. Also, learning materials and snacks will be provided that night, and the entire event is FREE. It will be a long evening with teaching running from about 6:30 pm - 1:00 am. Come ready and eager to learn.

KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR EMAIL FOR INFO BY APRIL 15!

Round 3: Prayer Night
Aug
22
6:30 PM18:30

Round 3: Prayer Night

Round Three is our third of four gatherings this year where we corporately call out to God through prayer, Scripture, and song. The Bible tells us that we are in a fight against the enemy (1 Peter 5:6-9). We believe that these nights when we gather like this or not meant as preparation for the battle, rather it is us together as a family actively engaging in the battle. We will gather “in the round” in the life building on August 22nd from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

Childcare will be provided for kids Pre-K and under (older kids are encouraged to come with their parents). Families who need childcare please contact Gayle by Monday, August 20.
