In this time of negativity and depressing news, I present to you this…WE ARE 4 MONTHS AWAY FROM THE RALLY!
Get Ready! Get Ready! Get Ready!!
We, in the Midwest, are excited about welcoming you to scenic Nashville Indiana!
On January 11th we had over 20 members gather for a preplanning meeting, and we have a wonderful venue planned for you all. I believe it will be top notch and worth sending invitations to all who are associated with Azusa StreetRiders. Following is a thirty thousand foot look at what we have planned:
For those coming in early, we will have an informal ride on Tuesday. Our host church, The Pentecostals of Nashville (Pastor Raymond Dupree) will have their usual midweek service on Tuesday evening.
Wednesday morning will kick off with 3hrs of Chaplain Training for anyone that is currently an ASR Chaplain or interested in becoming an ASR Chaplain. There will be a short ride following for about 3hrs.
OUTREACH! Due to the host church having service on Tuesday, the Lord has opened a door for ASR to team up with the great saints from Nashville to participate in an outreach event!! We will gather around 5pm to support a singing event that features several local Apostolic Singing venues. This will feature “Upper Room Experience”, “Potters Clay”, “Sharp Family Bluegrass”, and “The Pentecostals of Nashville Worship Team”!!! Our ASR members will be mingling with the crowd and handing out invitations to both the rides and evening services. We are believing that Brown County will be changed forever with a mighty move of the Holy Ghost, because of your participation in this outreach initiative.
Thursday will have a ride to see some of the sights of the Hoosier Hill Country, and then our Missions Service that evening with Bro Scotty Grimh, Missionary to Africa. Don’t forget to watch for the meal plan that will have us eating lunch at Golden Corral and then supper prior to the evening service provided by the host church, and then we have a team that will provide an “after burner” session of snacks and fellowship after the service.
Friday will have us riding to a Harley shop in Bloomington Indiana, then dropping down to a local park called Cascades. Our Heaven Bound Hoosier chapter (headed by Mark Wever) have a pavilion reserved and through the meal plan they also have a meal planned for lunch! Bring your kids!! Across from the pavilion there is a huge play ground for them to let off some steam. Then we will ride a scenic route back into Nashville Indiana for some down time before we have supper prior to the service and another “after burner” for fellowship time.
Saturday has our ASR Annual Meeting in the morning with a great lunch before we close out the meeting. We will have a ride planned after the meeting once again for those that are hanging around.
There are several churches in the immediate area that all have ASR members so we will have a list of some churches that you may worship with on Sunday morning.
Once again, don’t forget to watch for the meal plan that will cover two meals on Thursday and two on Friday. And, just in case you have not made reservations, the host hotel is Seasons Lodge in Nashville Indiana. (see 2020 National Rally event on Facebook)
