Community News - 7/30/13

Midweek Prayer Time Tomorrow Evening!
Often times, Christians don't see the real need of prayer. David Platt said, "You don’t need prayer when you’re watching TV. And we don’t need prayer when we’re mindlessly surfing the internet. You don’t need prayer when there’s nothing at stake in your walk with Christ. You don’t need prayer when Christianity consists of a monotonous religious motion of routine week-in and week-out. You don’t need prayer for that; you can do that on your own. But when you risk everything to glorify Jesus Christ, you need prayer. When you sacrifice your possessions, your dreams, your hopes, and your career, and you lay it all on the line and you stake your reputation down on your allegiance to Christ, you need prayer." Join us tomorrow night at 6:30 PM as we join together in desperation for Jesus Christ. Don't miss this powerful time of supplication and thanksgiving before our Great and Mighty God!

Two Upcoming Missions Opportunities: 
Cambodia: September 11th - 21st. Cost: $1,000 plus airfare
Join us as we travel to Cambodia to train pastors and churches in Conversational Evangelism/T4T. We will be partnering with churches that Bernie and Nan Dykhouse have connections with in Phnom Penh, Kampong Cham and Siem Reap. 
Southeast Asia: November 9th - 26th. Cost: $1,500 plus airfare
Journey with us to share the Good News in  two closed countries. In the first country, we will be prayer walking and looking for "persons of peace" as we trek the mountains and rice paddies of this beautiful country. In the second country, we will engage folks with spiritual conversations which lead to the Gospel with the majority People Group which has been described as "impossible to believe in Jesus." 
Contact Alan or Shannon if interested in either of these opportunities!
