2023 - 2024 District Nights of Worship & Prayer

Hello Georgia Nazarenes!

Nights of Worship & Prayer are back 2023-2024These 6pm gatherings are for everyone! Special afternoon meetings (4:30pm) are planned for pastors and pastor's spouses.

As I travel the state, I am convinced that we need more opportunities to connect with each other, and to worship and pray together. So, please mark your calendars and make plans to join us. We are planning for nine special Sunday evenings in various regions (see list in the pic) at churches who have not hosted these events perviously.

You are loved and appreciated!
