It has been five years and they are ready for a celebration.
Members of Liberty Prayer Chapel in Hinesville will celebrate the church’s fifth anniversary Aug. 30 through Sept. 2.
“We want to make this a community-wide celebration, and we are inviting the community to participate,” Pastor Katrina Deason said.
Deason is the senior pastor of Liberty Prayer Chapel and the director of the Liberty County Manna House.
“God put us in the heart of Hinesville for a reason. He works best through us,” she said.  
As part of the church’s anniversary services on Tuesday, the program will be in support of the United Ministerial Alliance.
Proceeds from Thursday night will go to help with the UMA’s benevolent funds. The UMA provides assistance to many people in the community.
“The UMA serves as the spiritual covering for the Manna House, and several of the pastors who are part of the UMA are also on the Manna House board,” Deason said.
On Thursday and Friday nights, attendees are asked to bring can goods and non-perishable items for the Manna House.
Deason said Manna House feeds more than 700 people on a monthly basis.
The speaker on Friday night will be Pastor Donald Battle of Divine Faith Ministries International in Atlanta,
“Pastor Battle is my pastor,” Deason said.
At 9 a.m. Saturday, there will be a leadership breakfast in the church’s fellowship hall. Immediately following the breakfast, Ellen Parsley (mother of renown television Pastor Rod Parsley) of Columbus, Ohio, will conduct the services.
“She is doing the Saturday service so those who cannot attend on Sunday will have the opportunity to come. Mother Parsley will conduct an impartation and anointing service for leaders. I expect an impartation of supernatural strength. We have invited many spiritual leaders to come and be a part of this service,” Deason said.
“Mother Parsley is my spiritual mother. I met her at a meeting in Atlanta, and she has become a mentor for me. She encouraged me by giving me a scholarship to take theology classes at World Harvest Bible College in Columbus.”
Parsley serves as the vice president of World Harvest Bible College.   
Parsley will also be in charge of the Sunday morning services at 10 a.m.  “Mother Parsley lost her only daughter about three months ago, and this will only be the second assignment she has accepted since the passing of her daughter. She and Pastor Parsley (who held their annual dominion camp meeting services only three weeks after his sister’s death) have been operating in supernatural strength,” Deason said.    
She invites the community to attend these celebratory services.
Deason is excited about the many things God has done at the Chapel during these five years.
“God took an old dry cleaners and turned it into a soul cleansing station,” she said.
Deason (better known as Pastor “K”) can also be heard every Sunday morning from 6-11 a.m. on WOAH 106.3 FM in Hinesville. She invites you to tune in “and have church on your way to church.”
