On Sunday June 29th, Amherst Christian Church participated with many other expressions of the Body of Christ around the world in a Call 2 Fall. At ACC, a handful of us gathered an hour before the worship service to pray. We also included a special season of prayer during the worship service, as we broke into small prayer groups. While the last Sunday in June had been set aside as a special occasion for prayer, the spirit behind Call 2 Fall is important year-round. We encourage you to maintain this practice of 2 Chronicles 7:14 throughout the year.
What’s a Call 2 Fall? Glad you asked! Here’s some info from the Call 2 Fall site:
Q – What’s involved?
A – The Call 2 Fall is nothing fancy. No slick program. No big production. Just setting aside a definite time during worship on June 29, 2014 when you call your people to get on their knees and faces before the Lord in repentant prayer for God to reshape our lives and renew our land.

Q – Who can join?
A – “Call 2 Fall” on our knees is for every Christ-follower in America. Specifically, there are multiplied millions of believers who realize that America is in trouble and that neither Washington nor Wall Street has the answers. We are hoping that at least 40,000 churches will join in a corporate act of humility, repentance, and desperate prayer on our knees before the Lord.
Q – Where will we do it?
A – “Call 2 Fall” on our knees will be happening in the many places Christians meet on Sunday. We realize that the church gathers in worship centers, store-fronts, homes, and various other places all across America. We are encouraging believers to kneel at least 3 to 5 minutes before the Lord wherever they may gather that day.
Q – When will it happen?
A – “Call 2 Fall” in corporate humility before the Lord is set for Sunday, June 29, 2014. Why that Sunday? Because on the day before we celebrate our “Independence,” we should also express our “Dependence” upon the Lord. Throughout this special day, we encourage believers to spend time on their knees in crying out to God to heal our souls and our land.
At Amherst Christian Church a special time of prayer has been set aside for 9:30AM. Please make plans to join us!
