What you need to know about today's services

        • Today's service: 10:30 a.m.-noon: Kidz Gig, which includes Psalty the Singing Songbook. This program tells the Gospel message through characters and musical presentations. A 2,000-voice Kidz Gig Choir will sing. The Rev. Mr. Graham will not speak.

        • Tonight's service: 6:30-9 p.m.: The Rev. Mr. Graham speaks. There will be a Christian contemporary and gospel music concert featuring Kirk Franklin and dc Talk.

        • Forecast: A high of 86 with lots of sunshine. Watch out for the threat of high humidity.

        • Traffic: Expect downtown and interstate backups. Taking the bus may be the easiest way, and Metro and TANK buses have special routes (;

        • Searches: Leave umbrellas, coolers, strollers and pocket knives at home. Security guards and police officers will conduct visual inspections, although they may search any suspicious person or item.

        • Severe weather: The mission will go on unless severe weather hits. Then stadium and Graham representatives, along with fire and police officials, will determine what action to take, from moving people into the concourses to canceling the event.

        • Other tidbits: Dress lightly and drink plenty of water. Although no other food or drink is allowed, people can bring in bottled water. Stadium concession stands will be open.

        • Coverage: Go to Cincinnati.Com for continuous coverage — before, during and immediately after today's Kidz Gig and tonight's service.
