PRAYER TEAM FROM TRURO CHURCH FAIRFAX TO VISIT NEXT WEEK

The Truro Prayer team will be visiting with us on the weekend of Feb 22 - 23. On Friday evening there will be a time of Healing Prayer at the Ministry Hub (church offices). This is a great opportunity to join fellow believers in praying for the needs of our community, as well as for personal prayer needs. It’s been said that the best time to pray is when you feel like you need it, and when you don’t feel like you need it. Join us as we rest in the grace of the Holy Spirit together.

Saturday morning will be spent in training for our own prayer team. If you are not already on the prayer team, or if you would like training for healing and intercessory prayer, please feel welcome to join us. And on Saturday afternoon there will be times for prayer appointments, for individuals who want opportunities for one-on-one prayer.

Childcare will be provided during the Friday evening prayer service. So that we can know how to prepare, if you would like to avail yourself of childcare for this event please email your intent to office@churchobx.com and include number of kids and ages.

A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR JOEY

Dear Church,

Thank you so much for your prayers yesterday. I know that abortion is  a difficult subject, and that yesterday’s sermon brought up many emotions, but I am grateful for your support! Your encouragement and kind words have been affirmation that God’s Truth was spoken.

I want to remind you of ways in which you can help bring an end to this evil:

Pray! Prayers work, and God is listening.
Walk alongside women that find themselves in a situation with an unwanted, unplanned, or difficult pregnancy. Be their friend and advocate. Love them in the name of Christ!
Adopt or foster. Pray about this. If you find that it is something that God is laying on your heart, know that He will provide a way. There are orphans in this world, and they need us!
Care for the poor and help fight against the systemic issues that keep the poor oppressed. Most women that have abortions are poor and marginalized. If we help them, we help the unborn child!
Educate yourself and have difficult conversations with those who will listen! Two great resources with which you can educate yourself are: www.abort73.com and www.liveaction.org.

Again, I am grateful for each of you! Keep being the hands and feet of Jesus in your daily lives.

Peace,

Joey

ALPHA--GOT QUESTIONS ?

Finding a way to reach our Friends, Relatives, Acquaintances, Neighbors, and Co-workers (Franc!)  with the good news of Jesus isn't always easy. Conversations can be awkward, and we often feel unequipped. We understand that, and we want to help YOU to be an evangelist to the Francs in your life. We will be launching the Alpha Course on Thursday March 21st. Alpha is a short course that presents the Gospel of Jesus and the fullness of the Spirit in a clear way and in a safe and warm environment. Our Alpha course will run for 9 weeks at the Church of the Outer Banks Ministry Hub. Each week will include a great meal, a short talk, and small group time for people to explore their thoughts. If you are interested in helping out as a volunteer with Alpha, or simply want to know how you can use the Alpha Course to reach your friends, you can contact Joey at fr.fitz@yahoo.com. We will offer a training class for volunteers on Sunday evening, March 3rd. In the meant time, I ask that you begin praying for those whom God will draw to Alpha, that He will reveal himself, and that the lost will be saved!

CLEAN WATER INITIATIVE UPDATE

Clean Water Wave pic.jpg

UPDATE: If you saved coffee and soda money to be able to donate to Water Mission, but were not able bring it to the service on Sunday, there is still time. You can give your gift to Chris Cooper, bring it to the church offices, or bring it to church next Sunday. Thank you for helping stand in the gap of this crisis in the world.

Our mission challenge this week has been to sacrifice buying coffees, sodas, and other liquid refreshment throughout the week, drinking water instead, and to save the money that would have been spent as a donation to Water Mission. On Sunday, January 27th, please bring your donation to church. There will be a time during the service to bring donations forward. Water Mission uses donations to create clean water in areas where the lack of safe drinking water is at crisis level. More information can be found at www.watermission.org

PREPARING FOR LENT AND EASTER

From Pastor Joey:

Advent and Christmas are finally over, and we celebrated the first Sunday of the Epiphany season this past Sunday. In just about 8 weeks we will be moving into the powerful, sometimes somber, and often healing time of Lent. Lent will begin with a worship service on Ash Wednesday, March 6th. Though it is still 2 months away, I want to ask if you will begin thinking about the coming season of Lent, and to put the Ash Wednesday service on your personal calendar. It is always a very sweet, intimate, and Spirit filled service!

Bruce Hunt bruce@churchobx.com

Be as specific as you can; it’ll help us find it. Thanks for your help!
