The churches — Croft Chapel, Ducktown United Methodist, Field of the Woods Church of God of Prophecy and Farner Presbyterian Church have been rotating Saturday morning prayer session between the churches.
After prayerful consideration, the churches decided to sponsor an interdenominational revival. Services begin today and run through Sunday, Oct. 7.
The evangelist will be Gary Keylon of the Church of God.
Services today are at 11 a.m. at Farner Presbyterian Church. Tonight at 7 services begin at Field of the Woods church.
The schedule for the week is as follows: Monday, Field of the Woods; Tuesday and Wednesday, Farner; Thursday and Friday, Ducktown United Methodist; Saturday and Sunday evening, Croft Chapel United Methodist; Sunday morning Oct. 7 at 9:30 a.m., Croft Chapel; and at 11 a.m. Ducktown Methodist.
Keylon was involved in a community revival in the Mobile, Ala., area that ran several weeks.
A tent revival is being planned for the spring.
“All Christian churches are encouraged to start interdenominational prayer groups and sponsor community revivals,” a representative of the group said. “This is an effort for the churches to work together to combat the forces of evil that are destroying families and especially the youth.”
During the week, Keylon will be making antidrug presentations in two of the local schools.
