STILL LIGHTING THE ONE FIVE
Our buildings may be closed but the church is still open. We are #StillLightingTheOneFive! We are partnering with many local schools and organizations in our 46815 area and our city that impact youth and the elderly by collecting items that will be given out to those in need.
Baby wipes, Diapers, Water, Pasta, Mac n Cheese, and dry goods that have a good shelf life. (At this time they have adequate canned goods.) Monday 3/30 through Friday 4/3 from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM
Just purchase or collect items from your own supply and drop them off in our trailer outside the church. That's it! We will do the rest and keep you posted on how your help makes a difference in our community and city. Let's show up to BE LIGHT together!
Three Ways to Respond
In time when the world is responding with panic and chaos, God's people respond well by remaining calm,
praying first, filling our hearts with God's word, and increasing our generosity.
Go to God as your first priority, not your last resort. We believe God is working supernaturally while we are working naturally.
PRAYER TO PRAY
Most Gracious Father,
We place our confidence and hope in You.
We ask You for protection, healing, and provision.
We ask You for wisdom to know how we ought to conduct ourselves as the body of Christ before a watching world.
We ask that You would open our eyes to see ways to love our neighbor as ourselves.
We ask You to use these uncertain and difficult times to bring renewal to our homes and communities. We ask that, by the power of Your Spirit, You would draw people far from You to place their trust in Jesus.
In Jesus’ name,
Filling Our Hearts with God’s Word
The unshakable foundation for our lives is God’s Word. It is our source of wisdom, comfort, and faith. It helps defines our current reality and illuminate our path forward.
SCRIPTURES TO MEDITATE ON
“When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down,
your sleep will be sweet.
Have no fear of sudden disaster
or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the Lord will be at your side
and will keep your foot from being snared.”
— Proverbs 3:24-26 NIV
God’s people don’t shrink from difficult times, instead, we react in faith believing that God uses our increased generosity to meet needs and shine a light of hope into the darkness people around us are experiencing.
One of the biggest ways you can help is to automate your giving. Set up recurring giving so that no matter how often we are able to gather, God’s work can continue
