This week, St. Louis will host the annual Church of God in Christ 108th Holy Convocation downtown. This gift was given to them by the Holy One, and with a selfish push from a stalling city called Memphis. A great opportunity for all souls to receive some blessings.
This year’s blessed bundle of holiness will include Bishop T.D. Jakes as one of the two guest speakers, and Bishop Paul S. Morton as the other. When Presiding Bishop & Chief Apostle Charles E. Blake, Sr., brings his powerful entourage back to the gateway, days after The Gateway Arch birthday. Starting Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, and running until Nov. 9, 2015, at America’s Center, there is a bevy of activities, including a health and job fair, and Christmas in November and much more.
On Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, the Presiding Bishops of COGIC Charities, will present the ‘We Care Banquet’. Fourteen years of worldwide crisis response and life enriching solutions to people in need. To reserve a table, call Sylvia Law at 410-992-3083, or email email@example.com.
This is the largest convention hosted in the city of St. Louis for 6 straight years, in which the church has five major departments: evangelism, youth, music, Sunday school and missions. St. Louis local churches affiliates of COGIC, will host events also including: Williams Temple Church of God in Christ Community Outreach, Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, with Christmas in November. There will be a women’s and men day for all walks of faith to come out and get some blessings.

Finally, on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015, it is the Lord’s Day worship celebration, starting at 9 a.m., with Charles E. Blake, Sr. Then later, The Service of Episcopal Consecration & Installation and The Holy Communion Celebration, starting at 7:30 p.m., the infamous Edward Jones Dome. So, whatever you are doing in your nightlife of St. Louis, make sure you take time out to come get some blessings. This is my 3rd year in a row writing about this great holy event, hoping to bring continued salvation to a city that will not be broken.
