Recognizing Opportunities

"Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done.” Ps. 105:1

Thomas Road Baptist Church has a unique approach to global missions. Each year, they train individuals to share the Gospel, shepherd those who trust Christ, and establish a local Church.  They support the local growth with the condition that the new Church begins to plant another Church within two to three years. Why? Because they have found that unless a ministry turns outward it will falter and lose focus on Kingdom work.

     We are called to draw closer to Christ as we go out into the world. For me, I admit I am shy around strangers. I am not the person who strikes up deep, meaningful conversations in the checkout isle. Instead, I need to look purposefully for inroads to build relationships. As a Church, this is why we are intentional about creating ministry events such as Ukrainian Eggs (3/13) or Men’s BBQ (3/14). They provide fellowship and an avenue to build intentional relationships to share the Gospel. As you see these calendar events, pray that we grow together and that God lays a specific individual on your heart. And whether they show up or you see someone you don’t yet know, recognize this as an opportunity to begin a conversation about Christ and the work He has done in your life.

20 Wonderful Years

main image

Hard to believe, but this fall we will have been 20 years in our current location. In the summer of 2000 over 300 volunteers came from all over the country to help us build. They gave of their time, treasure, and skills to give our church family a home.

         Our own members were part of that effort as well. Every member was involved in building, painting, cleaning, being a go-fer, or fixing food. It was an amazing time of spiritual growth as the church prepared a place to invite people and to do ministry.

This October we’re going to celebrate what God has done back in 2000 and in the years following and what He continues to do! Stay tuned for details of this great celebration. See you in church on Sunday!
