January 6, 2013 “Invite and Engage”

Before I get started this morning I want to ask you to take note of the new semester of weekday Bible studies that are being offered for men and for women. Two of those will begin this Wednesday night at 6:15.

Also I want to ask you to pray for our team that will be leaving this evening for India. We will dedicate the IBS Training Center that a large contribution from our church a year ago has made possible. We’ll conduct the first training event in that facility for 50-60 leaders and pastors from Karnataka. We’ll also have our first contact with the Rama Shatriya people group which our church has adopted. So far as we know there is no one preaching the Gospel to this group of people, no one planting churches among them. This is also the 40th anniversary of the BBH and we will participate in their celebration. I ask that you pray for us.

Open your Bibles to Luke 19. We’ve just come off of a season where we have focused on the great doctrine of the incarnation, the coming of the Christ into this world.
