May: Legacy of Intimacy

​As God's Spirit awakens His people to prayer , He often does so as John 17 unity is experienced through His pastors, marketplace leaders and intercessors. Awaken Atlanta is one such God initiative which is then serving Real Momentum to "awaken" men to the imperative of  their role in His Kingdom purposes. April 16–18, 2015, the Convergence Conference hosted by Awaken Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center will bring kingdom “streams” together in unity and vision for Jesus followers to live out a Prayer-Care-Share lifestyle.

December: Unreasonable Love

Embrace the children of prisoners in your community by providing them with a Christmas gift, given in love, on behalf of their incarcerated parent. When your church signs up for Angel Tree, you’ll receive the names of children whose mom or dad in prison has personally filled out an application for their child, and selected the general type of gift they would like their child to receive. Church members are invited to select a name(s), purchase, wrap, and personally deliver a gift for each child on behalf of the incarcerated parent, and in the process, share the hope of the Gospel. For more information, call 1-800-55 ANGEL (26435) or visit www.angeltree.org
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.
The one who fears is not made perfect in love.  1 John 4: 18
