Empowerment Church To Open Doors To Residents Nov. 14

Saturday, November 13, 2021 || PRESS RELEASE || @maywoodnews 

Empowerment Church and Empowerment Foundation are poised to do what it does best: Empower people. During the pandemic we have held online services and hosted a few parking lot services outside but this time, we are taking it indoors and hosting an in-person Sunday service. For the first time since 2019 Empowerment Church is opening its door to residents this Sunday evening, Nov. 14, at Proviso West High School’s Theater for a night of in-person worship experience – a night of worship, word, and revival.

As a means to continue supporting local minority owned businesses as they aim to holistically meet the needs of the community, Pastor Teddy and Empowerment is partnering with Trevor Black, CEO, of Chicago’s Chicken Shack to provide dinners to-go for the first 100 people.

With the COVID 19 pandemic, social unrest, the veil being pulled back on structural and historical racism and its impact on our community, the violence and deaths in our communities has left us all shaken in our faith. The tragic losses of life and seeming absence of hope. Together we’ve faced an attack on our democracy, our economy, our communities, our families, and even the church – all while fighting a deadly virus that has us grieving the mass loss of human life. The trauma in our communities is insurmountable.

The past 20 months has knocked the wind out of so many of us, and this year isn’t over yet. Let’s come together for an evening of hope, encouragement, and spiritual renewal.

Empowerment Church is reimagining the way we think about the traditional Sunday service experience and is looking at how to bridge the generational gaps,” said Matthews. Matthews, at just 30-years-old, is committed to creating change for community residents while offering a renewed take on their spiritual journey and walk with God.

This upcoming Empowerment Night introduces a LIVE and in-person experience on a Sunday evening to give local families an option to reimagine the community’s spiritual needs. “We are living in very different times and need to keep innovating the different methods for serving people,” said Matthews.

Pastor Teddy is inviting residents from Proviso Township and the Greater Chicagoland area to meet him at the Proviso West High School Theater, service beginning at 6 p.m. on Nov. 14, for “revival and renewal.” People must RSVP on the church’s website to attend Empowerment Night. This is a family-focused event, so all ages are welcome.

Empowerment Church promotes safety and responsibility during the pandemic and asks that all attendees wear face masks during the event.
