Prayer Focus | April 2014

2nd Monday is one day, specifically set apart each month, to slow down from our daily routine to seek God more intentionally. This posture of prayer, fasting, and worship has found its way into our monthly rhythm since Winter 2010 and is a day not to be missed. Together, we strive to set aside our busy-ness and passionately seek Him for our lives, our church, our friends, families and our communities.

Before you start the day, during your breaks, in-between classes or appointments, while the kids are at school, and to end the day…

Pray. Fast. Seek God.

Prayer Focus | April  2014

Our 2nd Monday Prayer this month will be focusing, in part, on The 595 Experience.  Please pray in the following way:

BLESS:
What the Lord will do and is doing through His people in Loveland as a result of The 595 Experience.

PRAY FOR:

• Your family and the strengthening of Families in our city.

• Your neighbors (ask for God’s help and leading in getting to know them better)

• The church in Loveland (for blessing and renewal)

• Pray for our city and community using our Police Chief’s model and invitation for GSC to join him in praying in this way:

  2. The safety and welfare of Loveland residents (especially in schools).
  3. The safety and welfare of visitors and travelers in Loveland.
  4. The protection of the City Manager and for the gift of wisdom that he may serve the common good of the Loveland community.

Good Friday // April 18, 2014 // 7:00 p.m.

Easter Sunday // April 20, 2014 // 9:00 & 10:45 a.m.

For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:10 NASB

This Easter, we’re exploring  how we are reconciled to God through Jesus’ death, yet we are saved by His life!

*Children’s Ministry available for kids in 5th grade and younger

The 595 Experience

595Experience

As each year comes to an end I spend some time in prayer asking The Lord what the New Year holds for us as a church. This year I believe God’s calling us to an all-church “The 595 Experience.”

SAY WHAT???

“The 595 Experience”  simply means that each of us commits to spending 1 hour a week serving outside ourselves, and our own personal interests. ( “595” is short for .00595238. That’s what giving one hour of your week equates to in percentages. 1/168 = .00595238% of your week.) The reason we are doing this is to be a tangible blessing to Loveland. (See Jeremiah 29:7 for more info) The focus of our efforts in 2014 will be two-fold : to love our neighbors, and serve our city. You have great freedom to seek God as to how you, personally and specifically, are to accomplish this goal for the new year.

However, over the next few weeks I’ll be laying out more of the plan of action as well as some of the ways you might participate if you need a little help deciding. “The 595”  is all designed to be easy, fun, and greatly fulfilling, as well as a challenge to our walk with Christ! Be sure to join us the next three Sunday mornings to find out more.

On Sunday, February 9th we”ll be having 1 combined service at 9:00 a.m. followed by an All-Church Brunch at 10:30 to celebrate our launching out into this great adventure God has called us to for 2014!!

I’m so excited to see all that God has for us in 2014. It’s a great time to be a part of His Church on the move in the world today!!

God’s Best - Pastor Kent

As we jump into the 595 experience we want you to share your experience with us and the rest of GSC by posting to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Be sure to use the hashtags #595experience and #LOVEloveland.

Follow us to see what’s trending throughout this 595 experience!
