Ministry Project Update

Last week a work group met to discuss the possibility of emergency shelter for Jackson County. There are many things to accomplish but a tentative target date of six months was agreed upon and a "To-Do" list was identified.

The group will be reporting to the larger Community Liaison Group made up of several local agencies and ministries. There is such wonderful support and cooperation among this group, and God has brought together people with a heart for ministry and serving God through service to the community.

This group also has a long-term vision that will expand shelter availability for various groups: families with children, Veterans, and others.

As with any ministry that seeks to spread the news and love of God there will be obstacles and people who will stand in the way - or try to. God's plan will not be derailed. His promise is that he has gone before us to make the way for us to do what he has called us to do.

Please pray for this group as we continue to plan, present our ideas, and trust God to guide and provide. You can pray specifically for:

  • God to be first in the individual lives of each group member
  • The group members to be united in our vision and purpose
  • God to tear down every obstacle
  • the community to be receptive to the ministry
  • resources to be provided as needed
  • God to begin to identify volunteers for the ministry
  • wisdom in all things
Thank you for your prayers. We will keep you posted as God leads and the group works. If you're looking for a place of service, please pray about this opportunity and see if God leads you here. If not here, then ask him to show you where you need to be. There is a place for each of us.God bless you as you seek his will for your life and serve him obediently. 

Please share your ministry stories with us. How is God using you now and what opportunities do you see for the future?
