The Kingdom Fellowship Weekend 2020 in-person event at Roxbury Camp has been cancelled.
An upcoming 2020 Live Online event is coming soon! Details below.
Lord willing, Kingdom Fellowship Weekend 2021 will focus on what was to be this year’s theme “Life More Abundantly.” You can view 2021 information here. We’re looking forward to it already!
Kingdom Fellowship Weekend 2020 Live Online
“Rise up, O men of God!– William Merrill
His Kingdom tarries long:
Bring in the day of brotherhood,
And end the night of wrong.”
The in-person event at Roxbury Campground has been cancelled for this year because of COVID-19 and current mandates surrounding that.
As a planning team, one of our prayers each year is that if God has something different for us that He would show us that. We are living in unprecedented times. Seismic changes have occurred in the last six months and so much is happening right now. Men’s hearts are failing because of fear. But God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
So, what does it look like for the church to steward this window of opportunity? How do we relate to all the issues that we face? What if the KFW community would still spend a weekend in 2020 sitting under sound teaching and praying in unity from our own parts of the world?
We are sensing that God is calling us to press into an online format of messages that are applicable to the issues that the church and our world is currently facing. Lord willing, we plan to do these messages over three evenings, Friday – Sunday, August 21, 22, and 23 beginning at 7:00 pm EDT.
We are happy to announce that the John Byler family will be sharing several songs live prior to each session (beginning at 7:00 pm EDT). Pray for them as they prepare for this.
- Friday, August 21, at 7:00 pm EDT: “The Rise and Fall of Civilizations: What Can History Teach Us?”
Melvin Lehman, Guys Mills, Pennsylvania
- Saturday, August 22, at 7:00 pm EDT: “Racism and Civil Unrest: The Christian’s Response?”
Finny Kuruvilla, Medford, Massachusetts
- Sunday, August 23, at 7:00 pm EDT: “Church of God, Awake! Arise!”
Donald Brechbill, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania
MARK your calendars, INVITE others, and JOIN to hear what our Father would have us HEAR and DO!
As you plan to participate in this weekend:
- Please be praying for the speakers.
- Please pray for the tech team as they prepare to host a large group online.
- Fellowship has always been a big part of Kingdom Fellowship Weekend. This year we will need to be more creative in making that happen. Towards that goal each session will end with a chance for you to participate in a virtual breakout room where you can engage around a list of assigned questions and pray together. Also, you could consider hosting folks from your community at your home and watch these messages together. As one brother on the Planning Team said, “Over this time I would see prayer, meals, and fellowship happening in homes in our local church communities!”
The event will be streamed live so that folks can listen by phone or watch online. We are also hoping to see opportunities for dialogue on these subjects as well as prayer together.
In the next week, we’ll be emailing information of how you can watch or listen to these messages. Be sure to sign up for email updates (sign-up form at the bottom of this page).
Eternal Prayer Flame
Be in prayer for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. Several brothers who participate in Kingdom Fellowship Weekend have started a prayer movement to encourage participants to engage in a 24/7 prayer chain lifting ceaseless prayer to the King eternal. Learn more and become involved at the “Eternal Prayer Flame” website.
Prayer is the waterwheel, the engine, the magnet, the fire, the soul, the access to power behind every victory. Jesus himself said, “Without Me you can do nothing.” Period. Nothing. Prayer connects the soul with the Source of Life and Power and allows for the Source of Life and Power to flow in and fill up the soul and overflow to influence the world for eternity. Prayer is not the least you or I can do. It is the most important thing you and I can do.Harold Troyer, “Eternal Prayer Flame” organizer
