What is, “The Awakening?”

Maybe you have heard someone mention a church event called “The Awakening.” Maybe you have no idea what it is. Either way, here is what you need to know about this big event coming to Jones County in April of 2022.

Where is, “The Awakening,” and when will it take place?

The Awakening will take place on April 22, 23, and 24 of 2022. More on the specifics on the schedule for each night can be found at the bottom of this article. Our location for this weekend of worship will be at the Magnolia Center in Laurel, Mississippi. We want to pack the Magnolia Center for some great nights of worship!

Who is allowed to come?

EVERYONE IS WELCOME! No matter where you are in your walk with Jesus or your relationship with the church, we want you to come and be encouraged on this night as we worship the name of Jesus! We encourage any who hear about this to tell your pastor about this event in order to get more churches involved. We want to pack out the Magnolia Center with churches represented from all throughout Jones County and beyond!

Why are we doing, ”The Awakening?”

Personally, as someone new to Jones County, I love the people who reside in this county. I have been blessed to be apart of a gospel centered church for my encouragement, direction, and walk with Jesus and can not imagine what my life would be without it. The Awakening is for churches to come together to be encouraged by one another while inviting those who might not be connected in a relationship with Jesus or those who have are not connected to the local church. 64% of Jones County’s residence are not connected in any degree with a church. We want those who are in this 64% to connect with Jesus and be welcomed into the community of the local church.
