Prayer for Summerlake

We’re at a point of near desperate need. We had a great outreach event at the Fall Festival at the apartment complex and met a lot of the residents. We are also a step or two closer to the carwash outreach on November 8th. So, we are making some great inroads to the community and have still more plans for the coming months. However, this is all in real peril of coming to an abrupt end.

For the month of October, we are over $500 behind in our budget. For the months of August through October, we are over $1500 behind.

We need your prayers. if you believe, as we do, that this right where God has us and plans to continue to use us, pray with us that the funds will be there as needed. Pray with us that we will see tremendous fruit borne from our outreach initiatives. Pray that we can grow our core group of members to about 25-30 people in order to qualify for national, state, and local convention assistance. Pray that God will show you how you can be a blessing to us: by your monthly financial support, by being a daily prayer partner with us, or by even joining us as we plant in Summerwood. God may be leading you to come alongside us and be an active part of the amazing things that God is planning to do through Summerlake Baptist Church.

Your support and help does not just affect Summerlake. Remember, our goal as a church is to start our first daughter church within three years of our first full-church worship service, and to plant 5 churches per year after our fifth year. These are lofty goals, but they are the vision that God has given us to see the Kingdom expanded through the New Testament method of evangelism: church planting. We don’t want to just add to Summerlake, we want to multiply the Church.

Please join us—in whatever way God leads. Thank you so much for your faithfulness to us and our call through Jesus Christ.
