For Our Guests
Thank you for honoring us with your presence today. Our guiding verse is “For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.” (II Corinthians 4:5). With that in mind, we’d like to ask all first time guests to fill out the “We’re Glad You’re Here!” card in your guest pack so we can know how best to be your servant. We ask that you place the card in the offering plate as it is passed. If you prefer you may fill out an online guest card at chinagrovefbc.com/guests

Hear…Pray…Act – This week we’re praying for Brandon Mercer, pastor in Winston-Salem. Pastor Brandon planted Redemption Hill church in an effort to help reach young families and children in and around Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. To learn more about praying for international missionaries, please visit www.operationworld.org

Unreached People – This week we’re praying for the Baloch people of Pakistan. There are 7.9 Million people among this people group. There no known Christians among this group and currently only the New Testament is available in their language. The Baloch people have been isolated due to harsh climates, difficult terrains and a reputation of being bandits. The Baloch people are 100% Islamic. Please pray that the walls and barriers will be broken down to the Baloch people for them to hear and know about the one true God. Please visit the Wall of Prayer for Unreached People Groups beside the water fountain. Please take a group from the wall and pray for them daily.
