Yesterday, we launched our Reach2016 Prayer Warriors group. Since then over 150 people from all over North America have made the commitment to pray for Reach. And that number is still climbing! Prayer is the most important thing you can do to ensure the success of the Summit. If you can commit to at least 20 minutes a week, we want you on our team.
Prayer warriors are people known for regularly interceding on behalf of others before God. To intercede means “to come between”, so prayer warriors are, in effect, coming between God and the challenges facing someone else. We are asking all Gateway brothers and sisters to become prayer warriors. You would intercede on behalf of Reach2016, and the team working to make it a success. Satan is working hard to derail our efforts to make this Summit great, but we serve a God who is far more powerful. With the collective prayers of so many, Reach will surely succeed.
Thank you for making time for this important task!
Minor Prophets Class: Ed Carr’s “Minor Prophets” class will meet each Tuesday in April, beginning on April 5th (7pm). Come learn about Jonah’s ministry outside the whale, that God’s love for us is a jealous love, complaining to God is a ‘prophet-like’ behavior, not all prophets were Israelites, and even the boldest prophets had a sense of humor. Expand your knowledge of God’s word, and learn more about His character and His love for you!
Parenting Workshop: Parents, save the dates for our annual parenting workshop on Friday, April 15th (7pm), and Saturday April 16th (9:30am). Friday night’s class will feature an interaction and discussion for parents of Middle School, High School, and College students. Saturday morning will be a time of collaborative learning for parents of toddlers thru Grade School students. Our guest speakers for both sessions will be Dave and Angela Hooper.
Child care will be available for the Saturday workshop, however you must sign up if you plan to bring your children.
Titus 2 Class: All women are invited to join us for the next quarterly Titus 2 class on Saturday, April 23 at 9:30am. Lori Mannel will be speaking on the power of the tongue. Our tongues are the strongest muscle in our body and spiritually speaking, possess incredible potential to do good or evil! The Bible has a lot to say (no pun intended) about our speech, and we will learn together how to honor God in this aspect of our lives.
Please pray for our sister Antionette Dismuke, as she mourns the loss of her mother, who passed away on Monday morning.
