Seven churches and organizations who are participants in the Urban Alliance network and one Urban Alliance initiative will host several evenings of worship as part of this year’s 40 Days of Worship Initiative, an interdenominational statewide initiative to unify the Body of Christ in Connecticut.
Worship hosts include First Church of Christ Wethersfield, The Hartford Project, Trinity Covenant Church, Valley Brook Community Church, The First Cathedral, House of Restoration, Citadel of Love and Wintonbury Church.
The 40 Days of Worship initiative consists of 40 gatherings over 40 consecutive days at 40+ different locations across the state. More than 100 churches and ministries of various denominations and ethnic communities are participating in the 40 Days of Worship, which are tied together by three themes: extravagant worship, prayer, and unity.
Rick McKinniss, senior pastor at Wellspring Church, describes how Impact Connecticut began, “Impact Connecticut is a vision and a dream that the Lord has been nurturing in my heart for many years. In 1999 the Lord spoke to me clearly, ‘I want you to claim Connecticut for my Kingdom every day. Ask me for bigger nets.’ I knew that this was not a ‘me word,’ but it was a corporate call. Nets speak of relational connections for a great in-gathering of souls (John 21:11).”
Each event is free and open to the public.
