ALEXANDRIA CENTRAL CAMPUS – 1200 N Fayette St. Alexandria, VA 22314

We Invite you to join us for Awakening 2018 as we begin this new year by putting God First!  Awakening began in 2005 under the vision of our Senior Pastor Stovall Weems of Celebration Church in Jacksonville, FL, and exists to empower individuals to seek God First and experience Him at a greater level as we begin each year! Awakening begins with a 21-day fast, and ends with a Revival filled with life-changing worship and world-class speakers who inspire and challenge others to go deeper in their relationship with God. We’re excited that this initiative has expanded beyond Florida as we join Celebration Church to experience Awakening in the DC metro area!
