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 missionaries we’ll call Paul & Doris Chester who are serving as missionaries in the Sub-Sahara region of Africa. Paul & Doris come across opportunities in their ministry that are totally foreign to us here in America. They come across people who worship spirits, ancestors and who are demon possessed. As they interact with them, they have an opportunity to share of the peace found only in the One True God, Jesus Christ. Learn more about how the IMB is reaching the world by visiting IMB.org/articles/

Unreached People – This week we’re praying for the Fur people of Sudan. The Fur people live in one of the most dangerous and tumultuous regions in all the world. There is a great need, both physically and spiritually among the Fur people. With great instability in the region, there is great opportunity to share of the secure relationship found only in Jesus Christ. Pray for the missionaries that are working in the Sudan and pray that the people will be open to hearing about peace found only through Christ. Please take a group from the wall and pray for them daily. Learn more about praying for unreached people groups at www.joshuaproject.net
