Brandon came not only to share the Gospel today and a special message out of Galatians, but also to share the heart of the Every Child Initiative. Brandon and his wife Alaina have a God-given heart for orphaned children. They have fostered and adopted children of their own and are following God’s path for thier lives.
The Every Child Initiative is an effort to join God in reaching out to, caring for, and representing gospel transformation to vulnerable children in our community and around our world. The Owen’s goal is to get one new foster family and one new adoptive family in the churches that they present to and then encourage the church to support the families taking this leap through babysitting, meals for the family and any other way the church can bless those stepping out to bring in these precious children.
We here at Lakes Church have a big heart for fostering and adopting children and we fully support this initiative. We encourage you that if you’ve ever felt God pulling on your heartstrings for children in these situations, we have many people who have been there and who are there who would love to talk to you about it and help you get more information about the possibility of bringing a foster child into your home.
Along with the Every Child Initiative, we kicked off a 40-day Prayer Challenge. Pastor Sean is leading this and encouraging you to take a few minutes every day at 7:14am to pray. We are offering a text message reminder to help you with this. The goal is to take this Lenten Season and push through and focus on prayer and God. The church will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:14am for prayer through the Lenten season as well as out Saturday morning prayer at 9am on Saturdays.
We hope you’ll join us in this prayer child as we circle 2 Chronicles 7:14 in prayer.
If you’d like to sign up for text message alerts, text Lakes714 to 41411 and follow the prompts to set up.
Have a blessed week!
