Every place on which the sole of your foot treads, I have given it to you, just as I spoke to Moses.
Joshua 1:3 (NASB)
It is time to get out of the building and start meeting the neighbors. This Sunday is the next Evangelist Team meeting and we are going Prayer Walking! The meeting starts about 15 minutes after Sunday Celebration and goes to about 2pm. All of our team meetings are “open meetings” meaning everyone is welcome. It doesn’t matter if you have been to all the meetings or none, you are invited to be part of this outing.
All the Evangelist Team meetings are Lunch-N-Learn style meetings, so remember to bring a brown bag lunch to eat before we go out. For our first outing, we will be covering the campus. For those that feel led, we will stop by the local businesses and introduce ourselves and New Bethel Church. We want to be a blessing to our neighbors and to extend the open heaven that is over New Bethel so it rains on them too.
For those who are unfamiliar with prayer walking, it is exactly what it sounds like. We literally walk around the campus and pray as Holy Spirit leads. It will be a little warm, so dress accordingly and wear good walking shoes. If you are planning to walk with us, please start praying now about what you are to release. Also, see if Jesus is a laying a specific business on your heart. Remember there are more businesses connected to our campus than Rays, Bucks and Jelly Beans. If you are not able to walk with us, please keep the team covered in prayer. You can also start lifting us up now and begin to pray-in those God Encounters.
In other news, New Bethel will NOT be serving at With Love from Jesus on Saturday. While we will not be on site this month, it is a good time to remind everyone that we are a donation collection spot for WLFJ. You are welcome to bring dry/canned food and gently used clothing to leave in the box located in the long hall by the kids’ classrooms. Large items, like furniture, can be donated as well but should be taken directly to WLFJ. For more information about location and donation hours please visit their website. I cannot say enough good things about the work done at With Love from Jesus. Know that when you donate to WLFJ you are giving to an organization that works hard to not only meet the physical needs of their honored guests, but their spiritual needs as well.
Finally, Vine Groups are still going strong and meeting dates are listed below. If you are new to New Bethel we would like you to know that Vine Groups is the name of our small groups or home groups. There are currently 3 meetings that take place at the homes of our members. Vine groups are a great way to feel more connected to New Bethel and get to know some of the people you worship with.
That’s it for this week. I love you and look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
