I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider distribution over your e-mail network of this information about the upcoming Greater Kingsport Area Prayer Summit. Attached is an updated flyer and below is an updated version of a press release issued a few days ago.
God bless you for your help in this.
A Greater Kingsport Area Prayer Summit is being held this year from Friday, May 6 through Sunday, May 15. The theme is “Lifting Up The KING in Kingsport. Close to 50 churches in the Kingsport area and neighboring communities of Hawkins and Scott Counties are already supporting this ten-day time of prayer & fasting. All churches and individuals are invited to participate. The opening prayer service will begin at 7 PM on Friday, May 6 at 1st Broad Street UMC on Church Circle. Following that service, an all-night prayer vigil will be held at the same location, with people invited to come and pray as their schedules permit. The prayer summit will conclude on Pentecost Sunday, May 15, with a 4 PM citywide worship & prayer service outdoors on Church Circle. On the days between these two services, community prayer services will be held each evening at 7 PM at the following locations:
Saturday, May 7 (South Kingsport) St. Mark UMC
Monday, May 9 (East Kingsport) Kingsport Community Church
Tuesday, May 10 (Bloomingdale) Vermont UMC
Thursday, May 12 (Scott County) Holston View UMC
Friday, May 13 (Colonial Heights) Colonial Heights Christian Church
Saturday, May 14 (Lynn Garden) Concordia Lutheran Church
A City-Wide Youth Prayer Service will be held at First Assembly Church of God beginning at 7 PM on Tuesday, May 10.
This prayer summit allows all Christians in our area to express their unity in Christ and their identity as the Lord’s House of Prayer. Most important, it allows people to come together to glorify Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and seek His Presence and His blessings for our lives and the lives of others who share this community with us. This is in keeping with 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

www.MoveToKingsport.com is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the Eastern U.S. This city of 50,000 in a metro of 308,000, was planned by renowned American planner John Nolen in his office at Harvard Square. Located in the lush green foothills of the Tennessee Valley, it is surrounded by the Southern Highlands and mountain lakes. Kingsport is home to Marriott’s www.MeadowViewResort.com and thousands of acres of unique, natural amenities at Bays Mountain and Warriors Path Parks. The natural geography provides a temperate, well-balanced climate with four seasons and a natural shelter from extreme weather. Population growth has also been well-balanced, ensuring you will not outgrow your decision to relocate. With no personal property taxes, special assessments, or state income taxes on salaries/wages, you’ll find that Kingsport has a very low cost of living coupled with an exceptionally high quality of life (see for yourself at www.BestPlaces.net). The regional airport (TRI) has direct flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Orlando and St. Pete/Clearwater with easy access, parking, and virtually no security lines. The public education system was planned by Columbia University and Newsweek has repeatedly recognized the local high school as one of the best in America. Year in and year out our graduates go on to the top colleges and universities (and without costly private school tuition fees). Harvard also recognized Kingsport in 2009 with the Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiative. What are you waiting for? It’s time to leave the high costs, traffic jams, and stress behind and discover this hidden gem.
