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.
"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. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality" (Romans 12:9-13).

"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another" (Proverbs 27:17).
This December, God has brought our men into a season of affliction and prayer. We pray for our families and loved ones. We lift up our parents and children. We pray for Blake's parents for health. We pray for John Michon's speedy recovery. We pray for Mike Cox's children and grand-children. We pray for Jerome and his family. We bow down to God in humble submission for more of His daily grace. We confess our sin. We repent of our doubt, unbelief, and indifference. We receive God's empowering grace.
God, make us men of action. God, help us to reject passivity. God, give us men who will step up and lead. God, grant us men who will bend down to help. God, make us men who will equip the next generation. God, raise up more men to proclaim Your glorious gospel. Amen.
