Prayer Focus | June 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 | June  2014

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 for: Loveland’s governing leaders, our schools, and our public safety workers.
  • PRAY FOR 10,000 TO COME TO SAVING FAITH IN JESUS THAT HAVE NOT KNOWN HIM AS LORD BEFORE.
  • Pray for GSC Missionaries (pray blessing on those we are specifically called to support – see the missions board at the church)
  • Pray for our Nation (for repentance and revival to sweep across the USA – see 2 Chronicles 7:14 for instructions on how to pray for our country)
  • The World (the Nigerian girls and others that are persecuted, the political turmoil in Ukraine and elsewhere, our brothers and sisters across the globe including Pastor Saaed in Iran and the Christian woman in Sudan who is sentenced to death for her faith in Christ and her children who are imprisoned with her)
  • Pray for the peace, protection and prosperity of Jerusalem and Israel.

PRAY MORE SPECIFICALLY:

I believe Father God wants us to pray more fervently for His Kingdom to come and His Will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. I believe He wants us to go deeper with Him by fasting and praying often. He is asking us, “What do you want me to do for you.” (Luke 18:41).

Pray this specific prayer aloud from David’s Song of Praise (1 Chronicles 16:35:“Save us, O God of our salvation! Gather and rescue us from among the nations, so we can thank your holy name and rejoice and praise you.

May God bless your 2nd Monday Fast!

Pastor Rob

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

Baptisms | Easter Sunday, April 20

Baptism

We are so thrilled that you are thinking about getting baptized at Good Shepherd Church! God is at work in your life and you’ve made a remarkable choice. You have made a choice to follow Jesus. At our church, this is something to celebrate. On Easter Sunday, April 20, Good Shepherd Church will be baptizing any adults, teens, and kids who are ready to announce their faith in Jesus. Baptism is your big moment to tell the world that Jesus has saved you, changed you, and will always be the Lord of your life. Before you step into the water, we have three simple steps to help you prepare.

  1. Fill out the application here. This application must be turned in by April 10.
  2. Listen to Pastor Kent’s message on the meaning of baptism.
  3. Attend our baptism prep meeting scheduled for April 13 at 11 a.m. We’ve got some great conversations planned for this time. Be ready to talk about what God has been doing in your life. We will also walk through the baptism service and answer any remaining questions.

We hope that your baptism will be an unforgettable experience. Do not hesitate to contact Pastor Bryan Vincent, or any other staff member, if you have any questions.
