Working to Unite Youth (CWUY) is hosting their 15th annual Mississippi Statewide Embrace Freedom event on Thursday, September 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. This one-night event, also known as the Abstinence Recognition Rally, will take place at True Vine Baptist Church in Brandon. The event will also be live-streamed via Facebook on the CWUY4me Facebook page.
With “freedom to wait without worry” as its theme, the goal of the Abstinence Recognition Rally is to promote abstinence among youth using a biblical approach.
The guest speaker for the rally will be Albert Tate, pastor of Fellowship Church in Monrovia, California, and a native of Rankin County. WLBT multimedia journalist Ashley Garner will emcee the event.
The Abstinence Recognition Rally is part of a month-long initiative that has been proclaimed for the month of September in our state as Embrace Freedom Month.
To register for this event, or for more information about Embrace Freedom Month, call CWUY program chair Tommye Jo Morris at 601-936-3513 or visit cwuy4u.org.
