Rev. Lorene Guyse, pastor of the Holy Ghost Temple announces the Annual Jesus’ Day which will be held, Sunday, August 5, 2018, 3 p.m. Jesus Day was founded in this area by Rev. Charlie Davis, Friendship MB Church of Ackerman, MS. When he spoke of Jesus’ Day last year, he said, “Every day is Jesus Day but today is a special Jesus Day. We have a special day for everything else, now we have a special day for Jesus.” Jesus Day is celebrated the 1st Sunday of August yearly at Holy Ghost Temple, a non-denominational church.

Jesus’ Day has legs, wings, wheels, an engine and it traveled to Mississippi from the state of Texas. While governor of Texas, Former President George W. Bush signed a bill into law proclaiming June 10, 2000 as Jesus Day. It was celebrated in Austin, TX the first year. It was patterned after the March for Jesus held annually by some Christians on the Saturday before Pentecost Sunday. The march was to express love for Jesus by serving the community and worshiping the Lord in the streets. President Bush’s proclamation urged people to follow the example of Jesus and answer the call to serve those in need. At Holy Ghost Temple, the call is to feed the attendees. Please come and have dinner with us.

Holy Ghost Temple, 175 Hill Street, Louisville, MS 39339, Sunday Morning Worship – 9:00 a.m., 662.831-0283.
