you haven't heard much like this ever.OK...over 1,300 churches took part in a historical series that kicked off yesterday. See all the details and join the conversation HERE. Go read some of the amazing things and post your comments. Craig Groeschel knocked it out of the park. What a Word from GOD.
At NEW HOPE the spirit and feedback were AMAZING! What a joy and Biblical response to a world in DIVISION (especially in the church), than to show them the CHURCH UNIFIED through the GOSPEL of CHRIST and HIS MISSION.
Next weekend I will be bringing the ONE PRAYER message live at ALL CAMPUSES (Saturday Night only...spend Sunday with your Dad's!...L-Ville: 2, 4, 6pm//Wooster 5pm). Too many things to post about the amazing day...see the WEBSITE for details. My ONE PRAYER for MEN is...Lord Make Us (like I would give it away). God will rock your world this weekend.
Here's a story like you haven't heard before...and PLEASE PASS THE WORD TO THE WORLD about what God has laid on our hearts so that there might be more moves of GOD like thisas well.
Before ONE PRAYER even was announced, God spoke clearly to my heart. We as the BODY are divided 52 weeks a year. What if this year during our OUTDOOR WORSHIP SERVICE (we hold one in the park every year, 1 service combined for our church). What if this year, we invite ALL CHURCHES who preach and live out the GOSPEL to join with us and partner together?
I was scared a bit, but I was obedient.
I sent out letters to every pastor in ASHLAND county, and what do you know? PASTORS were BOLD and shared the vision.
SO...on SUNDAY, July 27th, @ 11am both in Loudonville (on the square downtown Lord-willing) and in Ashland (at Community Stadium) we will join with SEVERAL other churches to hold the first ONE SERVICE combined worship service. Why is this unique?
We will be coming together not on an "off-time" but during PRIME TIME and will WORSHIP AS ONE this SUMMER together. There will be a FREE MEAL provided afterwards for fellowship and getting to know others across the BODY of CHRIST. (And Lord-willing, those who do not know CHRIST or have a church home!)
All I can say is WOW. Please PRAY for our informational meetings this THURSDAY night.
Is YOUR CHURCH coming if you are in ASHLAND COUNTY? Start the buzz.
God's Spirit is truly up to something through ONE PRAYER and ONE SERVICE. Father...May they be ONE!
One last thing: please PRAY for my hometown of Columbus, Indiana, and other towns in Indiana. It was devastated by floods like no other. Some of my friends were impacted.
blessings and peace.
