Upcoming Events

Catalyst Week 2017

Catalyst Week is the body of Christ in Kalamazoo coming together in unity to DO THE GREAT COMMISSION!

In the past few years, thousands of meals were served at the Prayer & Grill Nights, held in over 13 neighborhood communities over the course of one week. Each year over 1,000 volunteers from close to 70 churches serve and love in Jesus’ name.

Catalyst Week this coming year will be July 9-14, 2017

We will kick things off with a large “OneWorship” community prayer & worship event at Bronson Park (Sunday, July 9 – date pending), continue Monday – Thursday with Prayer & Grill Nights all across the region… and conclude with an outdoor Celebration & Testimony at LaCrone Park on Friday, July 14.

OneWorship + GKPP 6.0
ONE ACCORD / ONE PLACE
IGNITING OUR CITY FOR REVIVAL!
(Acts 2:1)

Jesus Loves Kzoo and the Greater Kalamazoo Prayer Push joined forces to call the CHURCH together for a powerful time of prayer and worship! God is calling the Church in Kalamazoo to a deeper level of repentance and consecration this year, as we continue to lay a foundation for REVIVAL in our region!

Friday, Jan 30, from 7-9 PM  the church collectively entered into a ONE WORSHIP gathering which flowed into a 24 hour time of prayer & worship. A huge thank you to all the churches who volunteered to lead in two-hour blocks. This event would not have been possible without the many faithful prayer & worship leaders who gave of themselves!

Pictures of the Prayer Push are available on facebook: click here
