Jackson Central UMC feels revived following three days of worship


Members and friends of Jackson Central United Methodist Church lived the theme “Revive Us Again” during the church’s recent fall revival.

The Children’s Sabbath jump-started the week with praise and worship services on Sunday morning. The theme of the program was “Children in Poverty: Chaos or Community – Where Do We Go From Here?”

On Monday night, the Rev. Anjohnette Gibbs, pastor of Evans Chapel UMC in Belzoni delivered an uplifting message entitled: “The Giants Just Keep on Coming.” Taking her text from 2nd Samuel 21:15-22, she related the story of David and Goliath to present-day giants – healthcare, child and elderly care, drug abuse, dwindling retirement benefits, rising gas prices, etc. 

On Tuesday night, the Rev. Maxine Bolden, pastor of Greer Chapel UMC in Flowood, based her message on Ezekiel 36: 22-29. Wrapping up the revival, the Rev. Leon Collier of Canton UMC, took his text from 1 John 1:3-9. His message was titled: “When Christians Can’t Stop Sinning.”
