CUFI Tri-State Event "Why Israel" To Be Held Nov. 24

Monday, November 11, 2019

Christians United for Israel North Georgia Chapter, along with Pastor Joe Brown, invites the community to a “Why Israel” event on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. at Battlefield Parkway Church of the Nazarene, 3220 Battlefield Pkwy. in Fort Oglethorpe. 

"The purpose of this event is to share why Christians should support Israel and what you can do to defend Israel," organizers said. "An update on what is happening to the Jewish people around the world and the crisis in the Middle East is included."

The event is open to the public.  There is no cost to attend. All people are invited, regardless of denomination or religion.  

Officials said, "This event features Pastor Victor Styrsky. Pastor Styrsky is a nationally sought-after speaker on Israel and the issues facing the Jewish people. As CUFI’s national outreach director and eastern regional coordinator, Pastor Styrsky has been a pastor, music director and pro-Israel activist for more than 25 years. He is the author of 'Honest to God—Christian Zionists Confront 10 Questions Jews Need Answered.' He has been a frequent speaker at college campuses, churches, synagogues, AIPAC and for other pro-Israel organizations across the nation.  

"Additionally Michael Dzik, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga and Amit Matityau, the Federation’s Israeli emissary, will provide insight, knowledge and personal reflections on life in Israel." 

Special music will be provided by Battlefield Parkway Church of the Nazarene Praise Team led by Pastor Rhonda Frye.  

"Pastor Brown has invited other churches in the area to join us in growing support for Israel by encouraging their congregations, as well as others, to join in this event," organizers said.

“It is important that the diversity of Christians in our region have the opportunity to learn about Israel and its needs,” said Margaret Bean co-city director for the North Georgia CUFI Chapter.

"The religiously inclusive North Georgia CUFI planning committee has been working together for seven years to produce events such as this in the tri-state area," organizers said. "The Planning Committee’s composition includes local pastors, representatives from the Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga, and CUFI city directors."

I know little about Scott Shaunfield, other than that he is a Captain with the Houston, Texas Fire Department, and the fact he once wrote a story about “the angels among us” that he knows is true.
