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 Rob and Lisa Warren, missionaries in Madison, Wisconsin.  Pastor Rob planted Doxa Church right outside of the University of Wisconsin to minister to college students.  Knowing the college students will leave when they graduate, they are discipling the believers (new and seasoned) on how to plant new churches.  They are sharing the Gospel with the goal of sending it out.  They have asked us to specifically pray that God will raise up elders to help lead the church as they are growing.   Learn more about how the IMB is reaching the world by visiting IMB.org/articles/

Unreached People Group–  This week we’re praying for the Koli of India.  The Koli people are primarily fishermen and agriculturists and live off of the land.  While they profess to be Hindu, they also believe in spirits and ghosts.  It is unknown if there are any believers among the Koli people.  Please pray that the spiritual darkness that exists among the Koli people will be broken by the Light of Jesus Christ.   To learn more about unreached people groups, please visit joshuaproject.net/
