President’s Challenge:

Awaken to God’s Invitation

April 2 at 6 p.m. (CDT)

Steve Veazey will bring a challenge to the church during a webcast at 6:00 p.m. CDT on Sunday, April 2. His inspiring message will be followed by a live question-and-answer session.

To provide easier access for members and friends around the world, we will release President Veazey’s challenge as a video on Friday, March 24. The video will be available online in English, French, and Spanish with closed captions/subtitles in the corresponding language. 

We hope this will give people added flexibility to gather and view the challenge in the week ahead and send questions before the live webcast on April 2. Worship suggestions for small groups or congregations will also be available.
