“..and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.”
Hello Street Church Family! In this blog:
-2-Need extra help this month
-3-Thanksgiving heads up
-4-Next meetings—mark your calendar
So thankful for all you do in serving and giving your time to our friends at Street Church!
Our PCC High School Students served our Street Church brothers and sisters last night for a special meal! I am so thankful to see God moving and blessing on the streets. I have been so encouraged by reading Isaiah 58 lately. I dare you to read about the fasting and praying that God asks of us. It’s humbling and inspiring.
We will launch a website in September specifically for Street Church. It will be an interactive site used for those on the street to find help and food, as well as information for you as leaders and servers in the ministry.
We will have stories, hopefully videos, and pictures of what God is doing. Please pray for this project that God uses it to bring many people to himself and also for those creating it and taking the photos to see JESUS through the least of these.
2-Need more coverage on Tuesday and Thursday nights
I will be gone for almost all of the Tuesdays this month. I need some rest from a very busy summer and I am vacationing, as well. I will also be in Dallas to participate in a conference (with Ruby Jacques, and some others from PCC), specifically on compassion and justice—and preparing for a class that we are offering on that very topic this fall!!
So, I would really appreciate lots of coverage on the street in my absence!
Also—our Thursday team is in need of more leaders to befriend, talk, and pray. We always lose a lot of help after summer when our interns and college students return back home. And the summer months are easier and warmer, but we always anticipate needing helping when winter comes. Please pray about joining us from 9-10:30pm behind café barrone on any Tuesday or Thursday night.
3-THANKSGIVING LUNCH IS APPROACHING
Please consider participating in our fifth annual Thanksgiving Lunch for the whole church body and our friends from the street! November 22nd at 11:30am in the fellowship hall!! We need lots of gifted people to make this amazing experience happen.
