THE congregation of Calvary Deliverance Church, under the leadership of Senior Pastor James Newry and Queenie Newry, will celebrate 32 years of ministry during its 2014 convention at the end of this month.
This year’s parley convenes from July 27-30 under the theme ‘God Is Doing A New Thing’, which comes from Isaiah 43:18-19.
“The theme encourages us, through the Word of God, to have a renewed spirit of expectance; that we are to forget the former things of the past. We must recognise God is doing a new thing, and that there are good things God has in store for us. God is making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. What a blessed assurance. This gathering will remind us that we are in a ‘fixed fight’, as we will have victory over every circumstances we encounter. It is important for us to perceive, believe and receive it,” Calvary Deliverance said in a statement.
The convention will feature local as well as international speakers, such as conference host Pastor Newry, Dr Jamal Bryant, Baltimore, Maryland; Dr Jasmin Sculark, Landover, Maryland; Pastor Samuel Cornish, Abaco; Prophet Charles Ross, Florida.
Divine worship services will be held at 8am and 10.30am on Sunday, June 27. Midday healing deliverance sessions are scheduled for Monday, July 28, through Wednesday, July 30, at 12.30pm daily.
Lecture sessions will begin nightly at 7pm before service time at 7.30pm. Topics to be addressed are current issues such as the proposed gaming legislation, Value Added Tax from the government’s perspective and the fear of crime in the Bahamian community. Presenters will include representatives from the Ministries of Tourism and Finance as well as Supt Stephen Dean from the Royal Bahamas Police Force. Special music will be provided by the Calvary Deliverance Church sanctuary and women’s choirs and praise team; Bishop Denzcil Rolle, Edison Sumner and the Voices of Praise, The Crusaders Brass Band and others. The church’s dance ministry will also be worshipping in dance throughout the conference.
All of the services, which are anticipated to be power packed and full of life, will be held at the church located on East Street South. Participants are expected to attend from the Family Islands and the United States. Other notable invited guests and dignitaries expected to be in attendance are members of the foreign diplomatic corps and government officials.
