Shalom,

Sitting at my desk this AM and thinking of the changing ministry that I am experiencing brings me to the same thoughts for New Hope BC and even you.

God has commanded a number of actions that a Church should be routinely be preforming for His Kingdom and His People.  I believe that those actions  can be summarized in the following Ministries:

  • Worship
  • Evangelism
  • Discipleship
  • Ministry
  • Fellowship

Every religious organization that serves and ministers to the Church forecasts a new ministry paradigm for the future.

As we seek our path as a Church for the future We have come to a consensus that prayer is a premier action that we all should be engaged in.   

  • pray without ceasing; 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NASB)
  • Therefore I want the everyone in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension. 1 Timothy 2:8 (NASB)

I have resolved to increase my personal prayer life and have encouraged you to do the same.   As  a Church we have added 3:33 PM to our prayer emphasis and have increased our prayer in  Corporate Worship and Midweek Prayer Service. 

Now I ask you to add to your prayer time Eight Days Of Prayer for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.  An offering that benefits North American Missions. 

Beginning Palm Sunday and following ...pray as suggested in the attached pamphlet.  Pray specifically.  Pray earnestly that God’s message will increase.

Also, include in your prayers for God’s guidance on your offering of support for this vital ministry.  Every dollar you give goes directly to the mission field.  Other ministry admin. and support expenses are drawn from the SBC Cooperative Program.

I give thanks that God has allowed me to remain to serve you and New Hope Baptist Church.

Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you; 2 Thessalonians 3:1 (NASB)

Shalom

Grace and Blessing,
Bob
