Missions

  
   
  
Pray without ceasing. Please continue to build a relationship with our God both as a church and as the individual praying every day.
Don’t forget the Porch is coming March 29, 2019, giving us all a chance to witness about our church and Jesus Christ. We are commissioned to reach outside the church’s four walls and this will give us a chance to do just that.
 
The Porch
In April on a Friday
Meet at church at 4:15 pm and be shuttled down to corner of 601 and West Ridge
Chairs and signs provided
Just need your witness to sit in chair with the sign of your choice at rush hour.
 
Isaiah 6
8Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for Us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”   
 
Remember, Christ has no hands but ours.
Stay tuned for more from the mission committee. Neighborhood Outreach coming this summer.
Don’t forget Easter is upon us and the choir will sing the Lamb of God on Easter Sunday morning, featuring John Singleton as Narrator.
 
  
  
  
  

 
Sincerely,

Helping Others

Rowan Helping Ministries
Our volunteers from Franklin pick up and deliver food on Tuesdays from Food Lion #1 that they donate to Rowan Helping Ministries to help the less fortunate. We continue to request members bring non-perishable goods to put in the box in the vestibule for Rowan Helping Ministries.

A Big “THANK YOU” to our Delivery Volunteers!!!


Battered Women's Shelter
As we continue to help the folks at the Battered Women's Shelter be aware of their need for bed pillows, dryer sheets, laundry detergent, Swiffer sheets (that wrap around), coffee, creamer, sugar, hamburger helper meals, summer clothing. 

Any question please see Grace or Bonnie.

Thank you for your help!




I knelt to pray when day was done,
And prayed, O Lord, bless everyone;
Lift from each saddened heart the pain,
And let the sick be well again.”

And then I woke another day
And carelessly I went on my way.
The whole day long I did not try
To wipe a tear from any eye;

I did not try to share the load
Of any brother on my road;
I did not even go to see
The sick man just next door to me.

Yet once again when day was done
I prayed, “O Lord, bless everyone.”
But as I prayed, into my ear
There came a voice that whispered clear:


“Pause, hypocrite, before you pray;
Whom have you tried to bless today?
God’ sweet blessings always go
By hands that serve Him here below.”

And then I hid my face and cried,
“Forgive me, Lord, for I have lied;
Let me but see another day
And I will live the way I pray.””
