U-Church fall lineup to include Wells and Greene   Lee University will once again offer an eclectic mix of U-church services this fall, providing students the opportunity to worship together in an atypical chapel format. Fall 2019’s performers include Tauren Wells on Sept. 8, Travis Greene on Oct. 6, and “An Evening of Worship” on Nov. 17. “We are so excited for the fall and cannot wait to get everyone back on campus to enjoy this semester’s U-Church lineup,” said Josh York, U-Church director. “Both of our guests, Tauren Wells and Travis Greene, were requested numerous times by Lee students during the past few months. It is always great when we can create a lineup inspired by our students.” Wells was the founder of the band Royal Tailor before he signed as an independent artist. He is a father, songwriter, worship academy founder, multi-instrumentalist, and performer. Many of his songs, including “Known” and “All My Hope,” have reached top spots on popular Christian music charts.  Wells and his wife, Lorna, have based their life around ministry and music. In addition to serving on staff at her father's church in Houston, the two have launched a private music academy, Prisma Worship Arts School. Two-time Grammy nominee Greene, who performs original gospel music, launched his recording career with his independent release, “The More,” in 2007 and since received seven awards at the 2017 Stellar Awards. He performed at the 2017 President's Inaugural Ball, the ESSENCE Festival, the Trumpet Awards, and BMI Trailblazers. In 2016, he and his wife, Dr. Jacqueline Greene, established Forward City Church in Columbia, South Carolina. In November, U-Church will present “An Evening of Worship,” a student-led service that is designed to bring all attention and focus on a time of communion for all that attend. A team of students meets throughout the semester to pray and prepare for this event, develop a theme, and write original music for the night. “An Evening of Worship is a special time for our campus,” said York. “We have shared many meaningful moments during our time of worship and communion over these past 10 years of this event.  While these services are planned and led by Lee students, we also enjoy sharing that time with our community friends.  We want everyone to know that they are welcome to attend this and any other U-Church event.” U-Church is a free, nonticketed event for students, alumni, and the community. Seating is first come, first served. Childcare is available for all who attend. Contact Jill Barnett at jillbarnett@leeuniversity.edu for more information.   ——— more

Zion Assembly Church of God to hold annual General Assembly The 16th Annual General Assembly of the Zion Assembly Church of God will convene starting Tuesday at the United Christian Church, 2200 Peerless Road in Cleveland. The assembly will convene Tuesday through Sunday. Special speakers and singers will be featured in each day and evening service. The theme for the Assembly will be “Ye Are My Witnesses saith the LORD [Jehovah],” according to Presiding Bishop Wade H. Phillips. Phillips noted, “This Assembly is a special meeting ordained by the Lord so that we might counsel together with Him, and to chart a course for the church to follow in the months and years ahead. It provides a forum for us to proclaim the Word of God; rekindle the fires of holiness and Pentecostal power; fan the flames of evangelism; stir our affections and deepen our consecration; lay out a plan to more effectively disciple believers and attract the ‘other sheep’ to the fold. Finally it gives us a forum to resolve any issues that may hinder our unity and progress forward.” The Abstract of Faith of Zion Assembly Church of God states, “The General Assembly is the highest tribunal of authority in the church for the interpretation of the Scriptures (Acts 15;16:4,5). The purpose of the General Assembly is to promote unity and fellowship among the saints, to search the Scriptures for additional light and understanding, and to resolve differences in interpretations which tend to be divisive among the ministers and churches. All matters of faith, government, and discipline are discussed before the entire body of the church assembled, and resolved in one accord with the manifest approval of the Holy Spirit (vv.12, 22, 28), based on the precedent: ‘For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us.’” The Assembly will begin Tuesday at 6:30 p.m with praise and worship by Kim Erwin of Cleveland. Following the opening of the Assembly, there will be the Voice of Zion/SYNC boost with Glenda Major. Kim Erwin will conduct the Ladies Ministries Program. Bruce Sullivan of South Carolina will deliver the message “Witnesses to Who He Is.” Wednesday morning at 9:15, the services continue with a sermon to be delivered by Anton Burnette, director of Education and pastor of the Cleveland church. His topic is “Witnesses to Who She Is.” This message will focus on the church of the Bible. At 2 p.m. there will be reports from around the world. Worship service reconvenes at 7 p.m. with a sermon on “Witnesses thru Stability and Steadfastness” by Corey Hall of Mississippi. Ruth Tingler will conduct the Senior Ambassador’s Program. Byron Harris of Mississippi will deliver the message, “Fearless Witnesses.” more
Make up your mind President Ronald Reagan learned the need for decision making early in his life.  An aunt took him to have a pair of shoes custom-made. When the shoemaker asked his preference of round toe or square toe, young Ronald hemmed and hawed, so he was told to come back later and tell the shoemaker what he wanted. more
