Hi everyone (if anyone’s really out there)!! It’s been ages since I posted. I have all the typical excuses… I have a few minutes and want to really brag on God. We hosted a Block Party on November 1st in Montevallo to try and reach our neighbors for Christ. We were very blessed by First Baptist Church Pelham who actually set up the block party and provided the program. I was blown away by this church’s kingdom focus. They were willing to put on an evangelistic event for another church without any recognition.
FBCP rolled in like an army! They had trailers galore and volunteers that converged on the field behind the library where we meet for church. Everyone had a job and they did it well. They had a stage, sound system, food, and welcome desk set up in the blink of any eye!
Donnie Sisk and FBCP’s Creative Ministries team did a wonderful job of grabbing the crowd’s attention and then driving home the Gospel. The Holy Spirit was there and we had 8 people make a decision to follow Jesus Christ and 2 others who took a step closer to Him! Praise God!! We also had the opportunity to connect with some students who don’t have a church family.
I was so humbled by the experience and have a renewed passion to reach the lost in Montevallo. We’re following up with those who made decisions. Most of them were children whose parents don’t attend church. Please join us in praying that these families will be drawn closer to God. Also, pray that God will break down any barriers (social, racial, economic, spiritual) that would hinder us from ministering to this community. Lord, let revival begin with me!!
