Layman Lessons Church Ministries has announced a “Christians Rising” Day on Capitol Hill in Nashville on Wednesday, April 17, 2019.
The organizer of the event – Layman Lessons Church Ministries, based in Nashville and founded in 2001 – procures and provides $8 million annually in donated food, bottled water, and life-saving supplies to homeless and needy in Tennessee and 15 other states. The volunteer work is done with no paid staff.
According to the announcement, “Christian Day on Capitol Hill is the Easter week worship celebration of the Passion of Christ and challenge to be the hands and feet of Christ in standing, serving, leading, together as Christ commanded us to do!”
“Tennessee Christians are and always have been the fabric of society since before we became a state, leaders are called ‘The Volunteer State’ for our sacrificial service to our fellow man in need. Christians arising answer the call of duty!”
The free event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon at the historic War Memorial Auditorium in downtown Nashville, where limited seating is available. Legislative Plaza has also been reserved for the event to accommodate overflow attendees.
The morning celebration worship will feature Governor Bill Lee and will include Dove Award Winner and Grammy Nominated Gary Chapman as well as challenging calls to action from fellow Christians like Congressman Mark Green, actress and model Jennifer O’Neill, and comedian Victoria Jackson.
The event will also feature Pastors and Christians leading ministries in Tennessee that work with the homeless, hungry, hopeless and desperate. The organizer promises other surprises as well.
