Churches Show Love in Action as Will Graham’s Celebrations Draw Near

from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association


Will Graham is preparing for a pair of US-based evangelistic Celebrations in the coming weeks, with the Black Hills Paha Sapa Celebration scheduled for Rapid City, South Dakota, Sept. 24-26, followed by the Iowa Celebration in Des Moines, Iowa, Oct. 1-3.
Both events recently held special training events for youth called PURSUIT. Hundreds of students from dozens of churches enjoyed live music from Kutless (Rapid City) and The Afters (Des Moines), grew in their faith and were equipped to share the hope of Jesus with their friends.
Christians in both cities also served their communities recently through a Celebration program called Love in Action. They helped at nonprofits, assisted with building projects, gardened and pulled weeds, and cleaned public spaces. “It’s easy to talk the talk, but we want to walk the walk. As we’re planning to proclaim the hope of Jesus through the Iowa Celebration with Will Graham, we also want to show the love of Jesus as we serve others through Love in Action,” said BJ Rogers, who is directing the Iowa Celebration on behalf of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Following the two domestic events, Graham will travel to Canada for a pair of three-day outreaches in Sudbury, Ontario, and London, Ontario.
