21 Days of Prayer

Can prayer be dangerous?  Is prayer supposed to be dangerous?   Any encounter with a holy God can be dangerous – not in a life-threatening way, but in a way that can be life-altering and soul-shaping.  All too often we pray safe prayers: God, bless me; God, help me; God, protect me; God, heal me; God, provide for me. During 21 Days of Prayer, January 7th thru 27th, explore the dangerous prayers that have been prayed by God’s people for thousands of years.  We trust God will meet you in a dangerous and life-transforming manner.  We pray that you will not the same and that your family, neighborhood, workplace and church will be impacted because you personally have met with God.

 

Attend the Annual Meeting

Join us on Saturday, February 2nd for an afternoon of vital ministry.  It all begins at noon with a church luncheon – delicious food and delightful conversation.  Then remain for our annual business meeting at 12:45PM.  It is a wonderful time of planning, praising and praying as we hear from our financial officers, pastor and ministry leaders.  All are welcome to participate in the discussions – including the 2018 budget and the election of church officers.

 

Area Prayer Walk

Join us on Monday, January 7th, at 10AM for our area prayer walk (weather permitting: we will walk as long as there is an absence of precipitation).  We would be blessed by your accompanying us throughout the neighborhood, praying for the streets, people and businesses we come across.  It is also an excellent opportunity to exercise your body and your spirit.

 

Gathering for Prayer and Bible Study

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Eph. 6:18).”  Join Pastor Mike and others in the church family every Wednesday night from 7 to 7:45PM as we pray for the needs of the church and her neighbors and from 7:45 to 8:30PM as we take a “second look” at Sunday’s message and its impact on our lives.  If you have a need you would like lifted by God’s people, fill out a prayer card and place it in the box in the church foyer any Sunday morning, call the church offices at (617) 825-7832 or e-mail the pastor at calbapt@msn.com.

 

Monthly Coffee Hour

Please plan on remaining after the worship service on Sunday, January 13th, to share in this month’s coffee hour.  We would be blessed to share with you a bit of pleasant conversation and some light refreshments.

 

Grow Through Christian Education

Everyone is encouraged to be at church on Sunday at 9:30AM, for our Christian Education program.  This year's theme -- BOOT CAMP -- will remind us of the 'armor of God'.  All are welcome to our weekly age-specific classes:

Children: Heart-Shaper classes meets in the "Red Carpet Room" on the church's lower level.

Teens:   Bible-in-Life lessons meet in the Conference Room.

Adults:  The Gospel Project for Adults meets in the Parlor.

 

Men’s Discipling Group

Disciple's Path: The Journey provides an intentional two-year mission toward maturity in Christ.  It's a purposeful process covering four volumes, 13 sessions each.  The Journey was created to nurture believers into disciples who make disciples.  All the men of the church are invited to be part of this study every other Tuesday night from 7 to 8:30 PM.  This month we will meet on January 8th and 22nd.

 

Consider Joining the Church

All those who have submitted their lives to Christ are encouraged to be baptized and become a member of the church.  If you are interested in pursuing either of these options, please speak to Pastor Mike about making the next commitment.
