How was your morning?
As you know, today is #GivingTuesday, a movement of nonprofit organizations, local businesses and philanthropists in the U.S. to promote and participate in giving that supports better, vibrant, and strong communities — even at lunch time.
At GraceConnect, we support a sort of virtual community — providing an online presence for the congregations of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. Sure, we’d rather hang out in person from time-to-time, but this is one way to create relational bridges that help Grace Brethren people in the U.S. and Canada pray for each other and encourage one another, all while building strong ministries in their own locales.
During the lunch hour in some communities today, volunteers are giving back to their local nonprofits. In this online Grace Brethren community, I’d like to encourage you to take some time during your lunch hour to pray for the ministry of GraceConnect. Here are a few ideas:
- Pray for the staff of GraceConnect, that we might develop content that is God-honoring, edifying, and creative.
- Pray that the platforms of GraceConnect will help nurture Great Commission teamwork among the people and churches of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches through relational bridges of communication.
- Pray that the congregations of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches will be used by God to proclaim His glory during the Christmas season.
Your prayer support is much appreciated.
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6 NIV)
