Mission of the Church

Morning Meditation Psalm: Psalm 32
Song: “High Above All Things”

Evangelism

“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:4-6)

Pray for….

-Our church to have an increased passion for both corporate and personal evangelism
-We would be “ministers of reconciliation” (2 Cor. 5) wherever we go—in the home, at work, etc.
-God’s blessing on our Alpha Course
-Visitors to the church to feel welcome and at home
-Spirit to reveal Jesus Christ and his salvation to unbelievers
-That we would be freed from the fear of man and laziness and other sins that hinder evangelism
-That God would give us a burden for the lost and their state
