June 20, 2014- Thousands of Women from Across the Midwest will Converge
Last March, more than 7,000 women gathered at Joe Louis Arena to experience Dawn Seekers, metro-Detroit's largest worship service for women-only hosted by Triumph Church. Now, on Saturday, June 21, from 6 - 8 a.m. more than 10,000 women are expected to again convene for yet another dose of Dawn Seekers at the fabulous Joe Louis Arena. This FREE event will feature a soul-stirring message from Triumph’s senior pastor, Rev. Solomon W. Kinloch, Jr., and musical performances from Grammy Award-winning gospel artists CeCe Winans and Hezekiah Walker. Plus, for the first-time ever, Dawn Seekers has teamed up with the DMC, the State of Michigan and Blue Cross Blue Shield to offer FREE in-person enrollment assistance to uninsured Michigan residents eligible for Healthy Michigan, the state's newly expanded Medicaid health care insurance plan.
“‘Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. taught us, “any [church] that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and not … the social conditions that cripple them is a dry-as-dust religion,’ said Rev. Kinloch. “Our desire to change the world spiritually must be matched with the same desire to promote a healthier community. This partnership with DMC, the State of Michigan and Blue Cross Blue Shield will give us a chance to uplift women and families holistically – spiritually and physically – through Dawn Seekers.”
Dawn Seekers is a quarterly women-only event designed to speak to women who are broken, in despair, on the verge of giving up or those who simply need to hear a word from the Lord. This event is non-ticketed and open to all women in general public. For the first time, men will be allowed access to enter Dawn Seekers, at its conclusion around 8am, to participate in a special altar prayer for families and the opening of the enrollment fair for Healthy Michigan.
Attendees interested in enrolling in Healthy Michigan must bring with them proof of status/legal residency (social security number, passport, immigration document status number), state residency identification (driver’s license or utility bill) and income verification for all family members (W-2 forms, pay stubs, or proof of unemployment). Enrollment is open from 4:30 - 11a.m.
