Seventh annual fruit gathering planned
“My Prayer, His Power” is the theme for the seventh annual Fruit Gathering at The Joy Mission, 401 West Third Street, Julesburg, Colo. The event will begin with a fellowship supper at 5:30 p.m. Friday evening, Oct. 14 and finish with regular services at 10 a.m. Sunday the 16th.

Pastor Frank Johnson opens with a welcome message at 7 p.m. He will be followed by “Preparing the Heart and Mind for Prayer” with Pastor Ivy Joy Johnson. Anita Scarborough of Akron, Colo., will lead praise and worship.
Praise, worship and prayer teaching by Ms. Scarborough begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and continues until 3 p.m. Prayers of intercession, agreement and petition will be taught and practiced by those present.
Ms. Scarborough has a love for Christian education, music and counseling that has placed her in various ministry positions in churches including the Denver metro area, Woodland Park and Colorado Springs. Until recently, she was pastor of the church she grew up in.
As a therapist, Anita often says that her own therapy and emotional healing comes from playing and worshipping at the piano. “It’s a wonderful way to ‘get lost’ in the presence of the Lord,” she observed.
After a free luncheon for attendees, sessions will resume until 3 p.m.
Saturday evening at 7 p.m. intercessory prayer will be made for our families, communities, and nation followed by a communion service.
