TO: MY WORD CHURCH/CMBC FAMILY AND FRIENDS
FR:PASTOR SHERMAN J, FORT
RE:PASSION WEEK REVIVAL 2021, TWCC OUTDOOR EVENT AND FELLOWSHIP UPDATE
Greetings in the high, holy and healing name of our living LORD and Liberator Jesus The Christ. I pray this message finds you prospering and in good health even as your souls prosper.
Two important things. First, our Passion Week Revival 2021 is almost here. Our guest evangelists are: Rev. Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr., Senior Pastor of House of Hope Church in Atlanta, GA., Rev. Dr. MarQuerita Story, senior Pastor, New Hope B.C. and Impact Christian Center, New York, Rev. Eric Archer, Staff Pastor, Friendship Baptist Church, Yorba Linda, CA. and Rev. Dr. Frederick D. Haynes, III, Friendship West Baptist Church, Dallas, TX.
Revival begins Sunday, March 28th at 8:00am and 10:30am. Revival continues Sunday evening through Tuesday evening at 7:00pm nightly. Our first ever virtual revival will be LIVE online and viewable via The Word Church AZ facebook page, The Word Church YouTube page, Live Stream via our church website and for the first time on Subsplash Media via our church app. See the accompanying flier and/or revival promo video for more information.
Our guest Musical Director (MD) for our Passion Week 2021 Revival is none other than the God-fearing, faith filled, gifted and good friend of Pastor Fort and TWC/CMBC Arthur Strong II. “Buddy” as he is affectionately called served as minister of music at CMBC several years ago. Our church relationship with Arthur Strong II goes back to just after the church was started and we worshipped in just one half of the MCT Board of Realtors building at 1363 S. Vineyard Road in Mesa, AZ. His love for Jesus our Master and Messiah, his passion for music (gospel music most especially) and his heart for God’s church is who Arthur Strong II truly is.
I cannot express my personal appreciation for Arthur, the Strong family at large and most certainly Bishop Arthur Strong I (in heaven) and Lady Strong. Buddy, thank you for sharing your gift and calling with us as our always member and forever loved friend.
All, we are having a fun, online contest for our TWC and online viewers with a monetary gift as the prize. You will have to tune in each evening to participate and win.
Next, the TWC outdoor, parking lot event with live music beneath the Pergola, food, games for children and more has been postponed. The City of Mesa requires that we have the permit for our event submitted by a certain date. To this end we are now planning for this event several weeks from now. My thanks to Sis. Brenda Thacker, Bro, Gary and others for working diligently on this event.
Finally, remember our commitment to acknowledge and appreciate the leadership of Sis. Angie Jackson who has led the TWC praise team for some time now. We will give her a special recognition this Sunday morning.
Pray with and for me. I am praying with and for you.
Pastor Sherman J. Fort
