Stroll along the sidewalk and window shop its row of lively stores, then grab a soda at the old-time drug store or meet a friend for a bite to eat in a hometown restaurant. Pittsboro, North Carllina is southern small town charm at its best. But talk to Lee Callicutt and he will tell you another side to the story: this area, in the middle of North Carolina, is one of the top pockets of lostness in our state. That means there’s a large concentration of people who are not involved in any church. In fact, the county’s experienced a steady decline in the number of professing Christians over the last decade. That sad reality, coupled with an expected significant population growth over the next several years, has prompted Lee to help plant a new church called Grace Hill Church. The Grace Hill Church worshipers meet in an old agriculture building near the middle of Pittsboro, where they seek the glory of God and the good of their neighbors by sharing the gospel in the heart of the community.
This week we’re praying for the Jhinwar people of Pakistan. The Jhinwar people are of the lowest caste in South Asia. With the Jhinwar being 100% Islamic, they have no one to model the life of Christ for them. Pray that people will be sent to share of a personal relationship with the One True God.
