"Crossroads" Cookout tonight
Last night we enjoyed a fellowship cookout sponsored by the Elders at Effingham Presbyterian. Tonight Laura and I are hosting a cookout at our house for our college & career folks-- I'm calling it our "Crossroads"ministry since that's exactly where this generation is-- at the crossroads between adolescence, adulthood, career, and relationships.
I hope you'll be praying for this ministry and the generation it will be ministering to. According to Barna research, only 33%-43% will be involved with a church this weekend. That's about 20% less than their grandparents.
Here's how you can pray about tonight:
- That all who attend will be sensitive to God's presence.
- That God will give us wisdom in how to nurture this age group.
- That we will all be inspired to build a ministry that is meaningful and purposeful to help this group grow to be more like Christ.
- That we'll have a good time!
The point of tonight will be twofold. First, to determine how our church can make a difference in the lives of this generation. Second, to figure out how this generation can make a difference in the life of our community.
From there, who knows?
