The "B'More Healthy Expo" on Feb. 10 saw approximately 30,000 attendees.
Members signed up to read different portions of Scripture and met together virtually every day to reflect on God’s Word.
The Living Word church in Glen Burnie, Maryland, is set to conclude its “40 Days of Prayer” initiative next week as the congregation ushers in the new year by focusing on a deep study of the Bible. Members signed up to read different portions of Scripture so that, collectively, the congregation will complete reading the entire Bible within the 40-day period.
In addition to the Bible-reading plans, the “40 Days of Prayer” featured daily opportunities for members to connect for virtual Bible study. Every morning, members received a video of Living Word pastor Kleyton Feitosa sharing an overview of a book of the Bible. Each evening, the church held an online prayer meeting on Zoom where members shared personal reflections on Bible verses that have blessed their lives. The online meetings have been well-attended, with an average participation of nearly 50 people each night.
This marks the third year the congregation has held “40 Days of Prayer.” According to Feitosa, the initiative has generated a lot of excitement in the congregation. “When you’re in the Word of God, it excites you and grows you, and that’s what everyone’s experiencing,” he says.
Feitosa hopes that the momentum and passion for Bible study built in the church during these 40 days will carry over into the rest of the year. “This is the beginning of a journey through the Word of God that doesn’t have an expiration date,” he says. “I want members to fall in love with the Word of God and continue to draw energy, strength, and everything they need for their journey.”
