Prayer and Praise Sunday
Join us on Saturday, February 5th, at 1 PM, for our annual business meeting. At this time, we are planning to conduct this meeting in person. It will be a meaningful opportunity to plan, praise and pray as we hear from our financial officers, pastor and ministry leaders. Everyone is welcome to participate in the discussions and offer ministry insights. At the meeting, we will also as approve the 2022 budget and elect people to church positions.
Committing to Diversity
In preparation for the Annual meeting, we are asking for your prayers that God would guide us in diversifying our leadership team. Pastor Mike is encouraging the Nominating Committee to adopt the practice of nominating any individuals to only one officer position. This practice will necessitate a number of individuals being elected to new roles. We ask you to pray that God would guide us toward membership and involvement in the leadership of the church. If you are interested in exploring the possibility of serving as an officer or board member, please contact Pastor Mike.
Monthly Prayer Walk
We will be conducting our monthly prayer walk on Monday, January 3rd, at 10AM (weather permitting). If you are able, come and walk with us around the neighborhood of the church, praying for the residents, businesses, and services that we pass by. Please understand that all those participating will be required to maintain proper physical distancing and wear a face covering when in crowded spaces.
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 at 7PM as we pray for the needs of the church and her neighbors. After this time of intercession, we take a “second look” at Sunday’s message and its impact on our lives.
Those who would prefer to pray from home can contact the church office and ask to be included in the weekly prayer e-mail (which is sent our on Wednesday afternoons). 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 firstname.lastname@example.org – we are here to help.
Coming 2 Gather Sunday
We hope that you can remain for a time of conversation (as well as coffee, juice and light refreshments) concluding our service of worship on Sunday, January 9th. We look forward to this opportunity to informally interact with one another and hope that your plans will include your participation.
We hope that everyone will be a part of our current Sunday School program. During the winter months, we will all meet in Axberg Hall for one big Bible class, which will have the theme Justice, Law, History (Studies in the Pentateuch, 2 Samuel, Ezra, Job, Isaiah, Nahum). This class will include a variety of learning experiences and will engage learners of all ages. Plan on joining us for an inspiring conversation about God’s Word.
Racial Awareness Discussion Group
We will continue our conversation toward racial awareness on Tuesday, February 1st, at 7 PM. We will be discussing the topics of chapters 5 through 7 of “The Color of Compromise”, as well as share our personal stories. All those interested can participate in person (at the church building) or on Zoom (Meeting ID: 896 2839 1252). Please feel free to contact Pastor Mike with any questions or comments you may have about these meetings.
In Case of Inclement Weather
During the winter months, please be aware that our church activities will be cancelled any day that Boston Public Schools are cancelled. If there is snow on the weekends, we will notify the community of cancellations through the local television stations.
As a church, we practice fiscal responsibility through an annual audit of our financials. Envelope giving helps in that process. If anyone wants their own contribution envelopes for 2022, please speak to Marie Pereto today.
Exercising Your Gifts
We are always looking for volunteers who will utilize their talents and abilities in Christ. If you are interested in serving on Sunday mornings as a Scripture reader, greeter, singer or host, or engaging as a prayer warrior any time, please speak to Pastor Mike. If you are called to a more unique ministry, let us know that as well. We desire that every one of us is a part of serving God and one another.
All those who have submitted their lives to Christ are encouraged to be baptized and become members of the church. Pastor Mike is available to meet digitally or outdoors with anyone interested in pursuing this next step of commitment. Please call or email the church offices to begin the conversation.
