Kingdom Prayer Focus

Father God, we thank you for your mercy and your grace. We thank you that you loved us so much, that even while we were in our sins, you sent your son to die in our place, so we may live. We also thank you for not making allowances or excuses for us when we fall. Keep us aware that our sinfulness not only affects us, but everyone around us. Help us to confess our brokenness to those who are part of our spiritual family so that we may be healed. Break down the barriers that we have built up around ourselves and remind us that the masks we wear only prolong knowing and experiencing the freedom that you have gifted us with! In turn, let our love to others be sincere. Show us how to hate what is evil and to cling to what is good. Remind us that a lost world is watching, waiting for us to show them the true Jesus, the one true Shepherd of the flock. In Jesus name, amen.


When you look around at our world,
there are too many problems for you to fix alone.
Mission Georgia unites hundreds of local Georgia Baptist churches to bring
transformation and hope to these issues because we are better together.
Donations will be accepted during the month of September
for this worthy cause. Look for the envelopes in the pew pockets
or designate Mission Georgia in your online giving.
Our 2022 Offering Goal is $15,000.
The five areas of focus for the Mission GA focus are:
Human Trafficking, Foster Care,
Internationals & Refugees, Childhood Literacy, Pre and Post Natal Care

Are you feeling confused about where God has called you to serve? Do you have difficulty discerning society’s voices of what you “should” be doing versus God’s voice? Are you searching for what God wants you to do? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, please consider registering for PLACE – Spiritual Gifts Inventory Class. It will be held on Saturday, October 29th, 9 am - 4 pm in The Lodge. This class will have limited seating, so sign up soon. A signup sheet is at the Welcome desk or call the church office.
