We have been having a wonderful time of fellowship at our house on Friday nights at 6:30 pm. If you are in our area and want to join us, please do. We would love to have you. We always have some (charismatic) praise and worship, prayer, testimony sharing time, a message from the Word or book study, and then snacks and fellowship. Tomorrow night we're doing some open discussion on how Satan works to squeeze the life out of us and I'm making some triple chocolate Ghirardelli brownies.......yummy.
Tomorrow also marks the start of a great 'Easter' book that we'll read in our home this year. It's called "The Final Week of Jesus" by Max Lucado. I'm very excited to be able to share the real meaning of this holiday with my kids this year. (Thanks for the book Minette. You donated it a few years ago when you cleaned out your book room!)
Saturday we have our weekend food pick ups and distributions. And Saturday also is the ladies tea with June Evans from 2pm to 4pm at Bethel Christian Center in Durham. This is definitely going to be a wonderful time of fellowship and exhortation! If you've never heard June speak, now's your time. You won't regret it!
Tuesday will be jail ministry for Dean and Terry. I know that will be a great time of ministry, as usual, and I hope to have a blog post to update everyone on how the Spirit moved in the pod.
Wednesday will be mid-week church, and I am STOKED. Last week I was able to begin a study with the girls in the youth group on sexual purity. I was so excited when Michael asked me to fill in and start the study. This is one of my big time passions....reaching teenage girls and letting them know that God has a BETTER way than what the world demands of them. Many of you know my story....my past....my pre-Jesus life. I was the poster child for sexual impurity and I paid the price. I can't wait to get together with the group of girls again and share my experiences from the heart, coupled with the Truth of the Word.
John 8:31-32: “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Miss Jean (a member of our ministry) holds a children's Bible study in her home on Thursday afternoons. I hope to be able to help her out with this as she talks about the resurrection of Jesus and the real meaning of the Easter holiday. I think 'Jesus' (aka Dean) is going to do a surprise visit to the kids to make the story a little more real and exciting.
And then the following Saturday will be the Crosswalking Evangelism outreach for April. WE NEED YOU!! There is strength in numbers and we promise you will have a great time. Even if it's only your first time, your faith will be strengthened. We will probably be meeting around Northgate Mall area, beginning there, and just going wherever the Lord leads. As this event approaches, please be in prayer that we will have divine appointments, and that we will walk in the Spirit so that we can be effective.
Until next time....
Loving Radically Through Christ,
