One Loudoun Revival 2015
one loudoun
One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One Loudoun

We can indeed pray for a movement of God for the visible unity of His whole church. Jesus desires us to come to “complete unity.”

Rev. Michelle C. Thomas
Senior Pastor
Holy & Whole Life Changing Ministries International

Kingdom Greetings Pastors,

Revival is coming to Loudoun in August! It is often said that as goes Loudoun, so goes Virginia, and as goes Virginia, so goes the nation. Amid the rapid rise in the tumultuous climate of adversity and cultural shifts, America seems to be dividing itself into two Nations. Loudoun County stands on the verge of seeing dramatic change for the advancement of righteousness, justice and transformational evangelism. Now is the time for Loudoun’s churches to rise up and take the lead in this new “healing and reconciliation” movement that will turn hearts back to the Father, and unite the county as ONE, regardless of race, gender, class, age or religion.

Imagine this…. The One Loudoun Revival 2015 - Loudoun’s Inter-faith Churches gathering for a three night Camp Meeting Styled "Old Fashioned Tent Revival".

Theme: One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One Loudoun, Reconciled by Faith (Ephesians 4:4-6).

You have been instrumental in changing lives and impacting families in Loudoun, and there are so many more who need to know how to connect with your ministry. Holy & Whole Life Changing Ministries International extends an invitation for you to share your ministry gifts during the One Loudoun Revival and Youth Crusade.

Please join us as Loudoun's inter-faith and multi-ethnic believers unite in the spirit of the Great Commandment of "love, unity and reconciliation"; to boldly fulfill the Great Commission of "Spreading the Gospel" together (John 17: 20-23, Matthew 28:19-20).

It speaks to all of us who love Christ and want Him to be a constant presence in our lives. I always leave this very spiritual experience with a sense of joy and contentment," she said.

The purpose of this event is two-fold; first to promote the necessity of a strong family unit and impact the lives of people with the transforming power of the good news of Jesus Christ and secondly, to support funding for our community outreach programs including free vacation bible school, missionary work and for the ongoing building up of the house of God which is aided by our sponsors and vendors.

Second Mount Olive Baptist Church located in Hamilton, Virginia was founded in 1872. The congregation desires to exalt God and encourage Christians toward spiritual maturity. The outreach programs like Family Entertainment Night - The Gifts Within, assist the Church in bringing the gospel to life in the local community.

The congregation would like to thank all for supporting the The Gifts Within program with your attendance and financial donations. The proceeds will help Second Mount Olive to offer this program as an annual event as well as continue their ongoing improvements of the existing facility, the expansion of the church building and the continued support of our community service programs, which include:

Francis and Remond Bible Institute: This institution was established in 1993, offering certified non-denominational bible studies to members and non-members.

Vacation Bible School: Now in its 23rd year, is a free vacation bible school, held at Second Mount Olive each year as an outreach to the community. The church accepts students from all areas of
Loudoun County. Free transportation and meals are provided. The classes include those attending pre-school through high school.

Youth Ministry: Embraces all children of school age for growth in character building, good citizenship and training in church business matters. Additionally, the youth ministry encourages the development of natural abilities and talents so that they can be used in service to God.

Women's Ministry: Serves the church and the local community by promoting and involving women in missions outreach, mentoring, prayer, nurturing and encouraging one another. The Church provides retreats for women, health and benefit workshops, and inter-personal relationship building through fellowship.

Missionary Ministry: Continues to provide a service to the residents of the National Rehabilitation Center in Leesburg each month sharing faith and music. Their community outreach provides assistance to families in need at least twice a year through our Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes.

Prison Ministry: The vision is to remind the inmates that the mind cannot be bound or imprisoned when properly conditioned. Second Mount Olive hopes to encourage and build up the inmates through discipleship, and helping with their personal maintenance needs.

God bless us, everyone.

A peaceful and prayerful expression of faith and blessing to Leesburg
st_johnCatholics celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi - Loudoun County Courthouse (Third Station: Matthew 26:26-29) Sunday June 7, 2015
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body” Matthew 26:26.

350 members of the congregation participate in Eucharistic Procession passing through Leesburg.

Saint John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church held a Eucharistic Procession on the Feast of Corpus Christi on Sunday, June 7, 2015. The procession began inside the church (First Station John: 6:47-51), then through the church property, then through St. John cemetary (Second Station Mark 6:34, 39-44), then down Church Street to the Loudoun County Courthouse (Third Station Matthew 26:26-29) in downtown Leesburg and finally back to the church via North King Street.

The Holy Eucharist was contained in a processional monstrance protected by a decorated canopy. The procession with the Blessed Sacrament under guarded canopy commenced at 3:30 p.m. (immediately following the 2:15 pm Spanish Mass) and concluded at approximately 5 PM. Gospel Readings, Prayer and singing were emulated at stations along the procession route. It is estimated that 350 of the congregation participated in the procession.

The procession was comprised of clergy, First Communicants in their communion clothes, Knights of Columbus in their 4th degree regalia, Altar Servers in their cassocks, members of all parish ministries and lay people and their families. The Loudoun historian Eugene Scheel informed me that to the best of his knowledge, no church has ever brought the Holy Eucharist to the county courthouse steps. This was truly an historic event in Leesburg.

In most countries, the Feast of Corpus Christi is celebrated on the traditional date of the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, which is the first Sunday after Pentecost. In the United States, Canada, and parts of Spain, the bishops have transferred the Solemnity of the Feast of Corpus Christi to the following Sunday. Catholics around the world celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi, symbolizing their belief in the body and blood of Jesus Christ and the Eucharist. Catholics display to their neighbors the love, honor, gratitude and belief in the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

“I know that historically, such processions have had a public element to it. With all of the recent discussions over public displays, we thought it appropriate to offer a peaceful and prayerful expression of faith and blessing to the town. We are very grateful for the support of the residents, police, and civic officials,” said Father John Mosimann.

About St. John the Apostle Church

The Church in Leesburg truly spans the centuries. From the small, 137-year-old chapel on King Street to the new church on the hill opposite, St. John the Apostle blends the quaint and the modern in a growing, yet still small-town, atmosphere.

“The new St. John the Apostle Catholic Church breaks tradition to make a statement to Leesburg residents,” said Mosimann. The church at the intersection of North King Street and Oakcrest Manor Drive, points north-to-south, instead of the customary east-to-west facing of Catholic churches, Mosimann said. The church’s front doors face the Town of Leesburg.

“We wanted to open our doors to Leesburg,” Mosimann said.

About the Blogger
Mark Gunderman writes and solicits articles that reflect the Church ministries and faith-based organizations' spiritual rhythm and follows the seasons of the Church. The Church and its ministries are relevant for news articles all year round, not just during Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Church and the media have many philosophical differences, yet common denominators link them together. Both have a message they want to articulate. An inherent responsibility for both is to communicate successfully.

"If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all and servant to all" (Mark 9:35).
