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 are praying for Doug Derbyshire who is an IMB missionary to Thailand.  20 years ago Doug decided that his comfortable life as a suburban doctor didn’t make sense in light of scripture.  He took a part time job as a doctor in the poorest area of Thailand and spends his free time setting up medical clinics in rural villages. He is able to use his skills as a physician to proclaim the gospel in otherwise hostile areas. To learn more about global missions visit Operationworld.org

Unreached People – This week we are praying for the Lao Ngaew people in Thailand. There are 34000 people among the Lao Ngaew and none are Christians.   Please pray that the gospel will take root among the Lao Ngaew. Please visit the Wall of Prayer for Unreached People Groups. Please visit the Wall of Prayer for Unreached People Groups. Please take a group from the wall and pray for them daily. To learn more about praying for unreached people groups at www.joshuaproject.net.  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.
