Sunday, we are turning to the book of Proverbs to one of the most beloved words of Scripture. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) I don’t know anyone, myself especially, that doesn’t need this reminder.
Are you part of a Sunday School Class? We want every member and every regular attender to be involved in a Sunday School Class. People regularly ask me, “How do I get involved in the church?” My usual answer is “The quickest way is through Sunday School.” In Sunday School, you will be part of not only Bible Study, but prayer groups, and ministry groups.
Every week, we have a prayer focus as a church. We call this prayer focus This One Thing. This week we have been praying for college students.
Starting Sunday our This One Thing Prayer is for an increase in the number of evangelistic converts and baptisms. The Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 3:1, “Finally, pray for us, brothers, that the Lord’s message my spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you…” Join me in praying This One Thing.
I asked our Pastoral Staff this week to set a personal goal to reach by the end of the year in reaching specific people and seeing those individuals baptized in our church. Our combined goal is 51. Pray for us to this end.
