The hands & feet of the Body of Christ at South Church. The horizontal mission of the Church must be rooted in vertical love & knowledge of the Lord. As Jesus said, "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks." Restore families seek to live out what is learned through Proclaim & Sustain.
Followers of Jesus, linked in arms, facing outward: growing in Truth, living on mission, sharing life together.
"Since we have a great high priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near" (Hebrews 10:21-25).
Pray for our Friday night Restore group. We've had a drop in attendance. We may need to meet another night. We are working hard to reach out to men on Tuesday nights, and to reach out to women on Monday nights. So, pray that God will show us how to Restore His family. Thanks for your partnership for Christ's glorious gospel!
"Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord" (Romans 12:9-11).
God is faithful. He continues to grow, deepen, and shepherd our men. We are seeing more men step up to lead their wives, families, and friends to walk daily with Jesus Christ. Our Guys BBQ continues to meet weekly at the Melton's and Bingham's. Tammy and Blake Bingham have been an immense blessing to our gospel family. Pray that God will bring more new men to our group. Pray that God's Spirit will equip more men to serve and lead. Pray that our men will reach out, share the gospel, and advance Christ's kingdom throughout Kerr County.
Sister Strength is growing! We are glad to see so many new faces! We have begun studying the book of Ephesians this Fall. Each week, we share a light snack and dig into God's living Word together. Of course, we all enjoy sharing what God puts in our hearts. It is always a lively discussion. Most importantly, we conclude our time together in prayer. Come join us some time! We are praying this prayer for you from Ephesians 1:15-20:
For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places.
