I am thankful to have so many people in our church interested in engaging the world with the Gospel. For some, that means praying and giving. For others, that means going. We have 6 members who have joined with 40 others from Louisiana Baptist Churches in going to Haiti this week. Please pray for Ray, Scott, Reed, Ashley, Laura, and Jessica, as they are in Haiti. Pray for many to profess faith in Jesus. I just heard from them. They are doing great.
Sunday is going to be a great day. I hope you are planning to be with us. We are in the middle of a prayer challenge. We are calling our challenge “This One Thing.” This is not only guiding our times together on Sunday morning as we examine the Scriptures about prayer, but we are also challenging one another about our discipline and habits of prayer. And what a time it is to pray! I could not have imagined the importance of this effort when God birthed this in my heart early this summer. But, now, all of this makes perfect sense, right?
Sunday, we are exploring one of the great opportunities in prayer—praying for those who are suffering and sick. Many who will join us Sunday are trusting God for healing. We not only will look at the Scriptures, but we will immediately apply what we learn during our service. If you know someone who is battling an illness, invite them to be with us Sunday morning.
Sunday night, we will have our New Members Class called First Look from 5:30-7:30 p.m. We would love to see many potential new members as well as our new members here. We will meet downstairs in the D Wing of the Education Building adjacent to the Fellowship Hall. There will be signs and people available to help you find your way.
