What is Rally Day?
Webster’s Dictionary defines "rally" as: 1) a verb "to draw or call together for a common purpose" 2) a noun meaning "a renewal of energy in joint action"
Traditionally during the summer, our many activities and vacations continually draw congregation members away from each other - especially on weekends. This year, with the pandemic, it seems many of our ministries took an unplanned and early vacation!
Usually by the end of summer, we need "a renewal of energy" when it comes to spiritual practices. That’s why churches often set aside one special day at the end of the summer to "rally" - to "draw together for a common purpose" seeking the Holy Spirit’s power to "renew our energy" for worship, for digging into God’s Word, for praying, for serving, and for witnessing. While some may worry that the pandemic prevents a rally, we believe a rally day is even more necessary and doable! God’s will prevails and thanks be to God, through technology, we will celebrate Rally Day 2020 at Amazing Grace and Crossroads!
On Sunday, September 13th we will be "drawing together renewing our energy for the common purpose" of growing in trust and obedience to Jesus Christ. We will be committing to resuming ministries and beginning new ministries, albeit in a new way and maybe not our preferred way; but together we will rally, renew energy and work together to serve, learn and proclaim the Good News!
