Tent revival announces new details

The three-day tent revival planned for October now has set dates and a location.

Rekindle Virginia will take place the weekend of Oct. 8, 9 and 10 at Bennett’s Creek Park, 3000 Bennetts Creek Park Road.

This revival is free and open to the public who want churches to be unified and prepared for a revival.

“Virginia was and is important in God’s plan for bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to

America,” said Dot Dalton, organizer of the revival. “We must remember our Virginia spiritual history and believe that we need to be revived in our love for America, revived in our love for Jesus Christ, praying that God will revive our churches, and also to be healed and revived in our burden to evangelize.”

The Rekindle Virginia tent revival is based on Dalton’s book “Rekindle Virginia, The Flames of Revival” which is soon to be released. Dalton is known in the community as the founder and former president of IMPACT SUFFOLK for more than 20 years.

Planning meetings are held at 7 p.m. every fourth Thursday. All church leaders and individuals are invited to come who want to see the Lord’s work in their area.

“God brought mighty revivals through the Second Great Awakening in America, which was in Virginia between 1740 and 1790,” said Dalton. “He did it once, He can do it again.”

Magnolia United Methodist Church is serving as the co-sponsor of the tent revival this fall. Anyone who would like to donate to the event can send a tax-exempt donation to Magnolia UMC-Rekindle Virginia at 1764 Wilroy Road, Suffolk, VA 23434, Attention: Rekindle Virginia.
