Dear Cathedral Family,

There’s a breaking…in my favor.

There’s a shifting…in my direction.

Even if you don’t yet see it, believe me, there’s something significant happening! God is moving on our behalf.

There’s a sense that God’s heart for us in this season is ACCELERATION! What would have taken some of us a long, long time to go through will happen much quicker and much faster. The time for us to go from where we are now to where we’re going is being shortened. For many who have been hurting and felt upside down, there is a shift and a change coming. It’s yours!

If that last paragraph resonates with you, I’d encourage you to take a moment right now to talk with God about what’s in your heart and set yourself in agreement with that word of HOPE! PRAY FIRST!

What a gift it was to have Adrian and Ophelia De Visser with us this past Sunday! We’ve had the privilege of partnering with their ministry in Sri Lanka for many, many years. And now, that relationship is extending to the next generation through their son, Prashan, and daughter, Thilini.

How humbling to hear how we have impacted people thousands of miles away and shifted culture for the better through our generosity in giving and the way we do life together! God is so good!! I invite you to join me in standing with them in their prayer for revival in Sri Lanka and agree for the same spirit of revival to be released across our nation, starting in our church family here at Cathedral and in our community.

We have some very special guests joining us this Sunday, as well. Ladies of Lee (a 51-member choir from Lee University in Cleveland, TN, under the direction of Dr. Randy Sheeks, a longtime friend of Janton Barrineau) will be leading us in worship and sharing their gifts of music and ministry. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us!

Just a reminder that you’re welcome to join in on our pre-service prayer time in the Worship Center at 8:15 am on Sunday mornings. Our Guest Services, C Kids, Café, Worship Arts and Tech Arts teams spend about 15 minutes together setting the atmosphere with worship and praying over all the aspects of what happens on our campus on Sunday mornings. We’d love for you to be a part.

Prayer really does change things!

See you Sunday.
