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 Kesavan and Viji Balasingham who are missionaries in Toronto, Canada’s largest city. Originally from Sri Lanka, Kesavan was raised to believe in Hindu and at the age of 19 became involved in a gang and was sent to prison. He read the Bible for the first time and became a Christian. He later attended seminary and became a church planter and planted Fellowship Church Rouge Park to help minister to young people who are in similar situations that he was in when he was young. Learn more about how the IMB is reaching the world by visiting IMB.org/articles/

Unreached People – This week we’re praying for the Mussali people of Pakistan. The Mussali are viewed as lower class citizens and looked down on. Most perform jobs that are considered menial and disgusting. They feel hopeless and want more out of life than they currently have. There are 2.6 million people that make up the Mussali people group with 0 known Christians. Please pray that they will hear of the saving hope that is found only through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Please visit the Wall of Prayer for Unreached People Groups. Please take a group from the wall and pray for them daily. Learn more about praying for unreached people groups at www.joshuaproject.net

Red Box item for Women in Prison ~ Hi Church Family! We are now collecting bars of soap as our Red Box item for those women who are in NC Prisons. They need to be between 4 to 5 oz. and we’ll have a box beside the water fountain to collect these until September. Our goal for our association is 800! So let’s start collecting now and make a difference in the lives of these women. Blessings, Jeannie

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING “Those who know your name trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” – Psalm 9:10
Please pray for our Pastor Search Committee & our congregation:
* That we will continue to seek God and His will for our church.
* That we would take time to truly know God more by being in His Word, meditating on His Word, and praying His Word.
* That we continue to trust God and His timing for our church.
