On Freedom Sunday, churches all around the world come together as a united, hope-filled, justice-driven community seeking to end modern slavery. We start with prayer, lament, learning, dialogue, and worship to inform and catalyze our response to this global tragedy.
Freedom Sunday is more than a day. It’s more than a worship service. Freedom Sunday is a movement of hope.
Freedom Sunday this year will be different from years past.
Because of Covid-19, we are encouraging churches to participate any Sunday from September 2020 through Lent 2021. We realize that some churches may need extra time to gather again and refocus.
We are excited to announce A Night With New Room, Friday evening, Sept. 25, 2020! As you would expect, due to the ever-changing restrictions and limitations of COVID-19 and with the safety of everyone in mind, we've made the difficult decision to transition the New Room Conference 2020 to an alternate format for this year.
In the midst of the chaos and uncertainty, God is still making a way for us to come together. Never before in our lifetimes have we experienced such a protracted period of crisis. And never before have we experienced such a profound opportunity for awakening. This is the reason for A Night with New Room.
Would you give us the gift of two hours of your time on Friday evening, September 25 from 6–8pm CT?
This year, we will come to you—wherever you are—via streaming video. Along with our team, we will bring awakening songs from Mark Swayze and Brenna Bullock; a timely keynote from Jim Cymbala of the Brooklyn Tabernacle in New York City; and an interview-style conversation between Miriam Swaffield and Lo Alaman with an offering of spoken word verse from We Sang a Dirge, Lo's forthcoming Seedbed book. The evening will close with a concert of prayer uniting thousands of hearts together across thousands of miles of apartness to sow for a great awakening.
Through crisis, we believe the Lord is opening a door for us that cannot be closed—a doorway into a sustained season of awakening. We must walk through it together.
Will you plan to join us for a night that promises to inspire without entertaining, to provoke without angering, and to call forth without apology?
There is no charge, but be warned, it could lead to costly obedience. It could well be a Friday night for the history books. More information will follow, but register today to claim your spot!

For 21 Days, October 4 – 25, we will agree together in prayer and experience breakthrough for ourselves, our pastors and their families, and our churches. As a guide, we use a book by Jim Maxim called “21 Days of Breakthrough Prayer.” We will also have our own Facebook Group to establish community and share the journey together!
Pastor Appreciation Month is upon us. Our pastors need much, much more than appreciation in these days. To see breakthrough for the kingdom of God, let’s pray for them!
Our National Prayer Ministry Team is such a blessing to help me bring this to you. I, along with others, will simply keep the journey moving along through the private Facebook group. We want to hear what God is doing in your heart and church along the journey.
Be one of the first 100 to accept this invitation and The National Prayer Ministry will send you a free book! What a blessing! Just click here and go to https://fmcusa.org/breakthrough. But, please don’t sign up just for the free book, we really need you to participate in the 21 days of praying.
Thank you! This is going to be great! Bless your willingness to jump in with me!
