MBC seeks cleansing before annual meeting with Oct. 28 Solemn Assembly
OSAGE BEACH—On Oct. 28, Osage Hills Baptist Church will open its doors for a Solemn Assembly, a time of prayer and repentance patterned after the Old Testament practice. A time specifically set aside for seeking holiness before the 173rd annual meeting of the Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC), the assembly begins at 5 p.m.
MBC Interim Executive Director David Tolliver said the purpose is to cleanse each person and to earnestly seek unity and revival before doing the business of the Convention.
“Getting the body of Christ together to pray in one place is the Old Testament pattern,” he said. “I’m thrilled we are doing this so close to where we’re meeting to do God’s business.”
Gregory Frizzell, director of prayer and spiritual awakening for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, will be leading the gathering. There will be a time of worship and reflective questions designed to make one examine the heart for any sin that needs to be confessed or area that needs to be yielded to God.
