Worship Night To Promote Racial Unity And Action Is Oct. 2 At Camp Jordan

Thursday, September 17, 2020

his past June, churches from all over town gathered more than 1,500 people together from different ethnicities, ages, communities, and socioeconomic statuses to pray, worship, and promote racial unity.  From the onset, organizers of the event said they knew it was just a start, and it would be necessary to plan similar gatherings in the future. With this in mind, organizers have planned the next prayer rally.

The next Worship Night to Promote Racial Unity and Action will be held on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Camp Jordan Amphitheater from 7-8:30 p.m. The event will encompass prayer, praise and worship organized by the Union Chattanooga featuring a diverse group of worship leaders from across the Scenic City, and a call for unified action. There will be various opportunities for attendees to register for service projects, which have been designed to build unity in the city. 

“This is a tremendous season for the Church to stand up and represent unity and Christ,” said Dr. Ternae Jordan, Sr., senior pastor of Mount Canaan Baptist, which is one of the sponsoring churches. 

Troy Brand, pastor of Orchard Park SDA, said, “It is vitally necessary for the Christian community in Chattanooga to unambiguously demonstrate that we are determined to not let the sin of racism divide us, and that this worship experience is a powerful step toward making that demonstration real.”

Nearly 50 local churches and ministries are working together to plan Worship Night at Camp Jordan.  Attendees will have the option to remain in their cars throughout the event or stand outside of their cars wearing a mask while practicing social distancing.

At least the mountain lived up to its name. ... (click for more)
