Instead, what if this time next year, churches all across America marked this anniversary – not by looking around, but by looking up and getting right with God?”
Raleigh, NC (Vocus) September 10, 2010
AnGeL Ministries, the ministry of Anne Graham Lotz, today announced plans for a worldwide simulcast to be offered for broadcast into church sanctuaries and homes on September 11, 2011–the ten-year anniversary of the attack on America.
“This 9/11, one small church in Florida is capturing the world’s attention with its controversial Qur’an-burning plans,” says Anne Graham Lotz. “Instead, what if this time next year, churches all across America marked this anniversary – not by looking around, but by looking up and getting right with God?”
The planned simulcast, offered as “A Wake-Up Call to the Church” will include teaching messages from Anne Graham Lotz, Bible teacher and award-winning author, and Joel Rosenberg, New York Times best-selling author of The Epicenter and Inside the Revolution, and an authority on Bible prophecy.
“Sunday, September 11, 2011, will mark the tenth anniversary of the attack on America. I have long felt the original 9/11 attack was allowed by God as a wake-up call for His people – a time to look up and get right with Him,” says Lotz. “But did we sleep through the alarm? My prayer is that this simulcast, held on such an historic anniversary, would serve to gather the church and reissue the wake-up call to the hearts of Christians everywhere. It is my prayer that it would refocus us on Jesus as our Hope for the future and re-ignite such an intense longing for His return, that we live the rest of our lives with no regrets.”
The program will be broadcast into churches and on the Internet for individual viewing from 6:00-9:00 pm EST and PST, Sunday, September 11, 2011. Plans are being pursued to also offer the program live on national radio and internationally via satellite television. The simulcast will originate from an historic venue once described by evangelist Dwight L. Moody as the “Pulpit of America,” Tremont Temple Baptist Church, located in downtown central Boston, the same city in which the terrorists boarded the fateful flights ten years ago.
The simulcast will be followed by an 8-week Bible study held in the simulcast host churches designed to reinforce the wake-up call.
“Prior to 9/11/11, I will be leading those who wish to participate in daily prayer for our homes, churches and nation. If churches or individuals commit now to spend the next year leading up to Sunday, September 11, 2011, praying for God’s people to humble themselves, seek His face, and turn from sin, I believe He will hear us, forgive us and heal us,” added Lotz. “The alarm has gone off. It’s time to wake up. It’s time to get right with God.”
Details are still being finalized for host church registrations. For more information on becoming a host church or finding one in your area, visit http://www.annegrahamlotz.com or phone AnGeL Ministries at 919-787-6606.
