“To all God’s people in the Mathews community (sic Philippians) who are in union with Christ Jesus, including the church leaders and helpers: May God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.” (Philippians 1: 1 ). No doubt you recognize the opening words as the lyrics to the Gaither song, “Get All Excited!” That is the theme for the Matthews Community Tent Revival initiated by the Evangelism Team at Salem UMC and sanctioned by the Mathews Ministerial Association. No doubt you also recognize Paul’s greeting to the Philippians, which is the mission and purpose of this community revival- that is to cooperatively proclaim “the grace and peace of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” to our friends and neighbors in the greater Mathews community.

Fellow “church leaders and helpers” not only are you and your “church family” members and friends invited to attend and worship, you are also invited to lead worship as you:
            1. Personally pray for, announce and encourage your folks to pray for and attend the Tent Meeting (including on site Children’s’ Ministries and Professional Nursery Care provided during the revival) and to encourage everyone in their circle of life to join them. (Don’t forget the FREE Kick-off Cook-out Wednesday night from 6:15-7:00 Pm).
            2. Post the above flyer in your church and, if you are so led, make copies for your folks to place in their and other local businesses and community sites (with their permission).
            3. Your choir(s), praise team(s), individual singers and musicians are needed each night. Simply email me at or call me at 302.236.9993 to get on the schedule as opportunity allows. (See attached form). They can share 1-2 gospel selections. Please bring your own accompaniment (live or on a CD). Professional grade sound equipment will be provided and operated by a professional sound team.
            4. Bring donations of food, toilet articles and/or cash to benefit Avalon and Hands Across Mathews. You may also want to collect food and toilet articles in advance.
            5. Most importantly: PRAY! Please pray personally in advance that God would REVIVE the souls of the believers and bring SAVING GRACE and PEACE to those who do not yet believe through the “Fresh Fire” of The Holy Spirit. And, lead and encourage your folks to do so as well. You and other mature saints who are comfortable praying with those who come forward as a means of leading them to Jesus are needed each night as you are available. Also we need praying saints to be in prayer in the sanctuary while the Tent Meeting is going on. With their permission, you will be given the contact information of those who come forward and indicate a local church or denominational preference, so you can follow up with them.

“GET ALL EXCITED!”                                                                                            + Rev. Kevin E. English
