You are invited to join us at the Men’s breakfast, January 20th, at 8:30 a.m. down in Fellowship Hall at the Wescosville campus. Our speaker is Fred Sorrick who will share with us his testimony which encompasses Prison Ministry and his involvement in CEF, Child Evangelism Fellowship.
Fred will also be sharing a message based on how the Book of Philemon deals with repentance & forgiveness and how we as men if we demonstrate this in our lives, what the effect it has on our children, grandchildren, our wives, Christian & non- Christian friends and every aspect of our lives.
Please come and join us for a time of friendship and fellowship. See you there!!!!!

Join this group of men for an in-depth study of two letters written by Paul to the church in Corinth. In this first letter found in 1 Corinthians, Paul addresses questions brought from the Corinthians themselves, both in person and by letter. In his second letter found in 2 Corinthians, Paul writes to comfort the brethren and to further encourage them in faithfulness. During this study, the group will also be tying the scriptures to today’s current events. This group always has an open chair and welcomes any man at any point in his journey to join them as they grow in Christ and with another.

Men’s Prayer Focus
JANUARY 22ND TO JANUARY 28TH
I have mentioned in a couple of emails that I met our new Youth Director Jim Thomas. I sent out a prayer request on Jim’s behalf and noted that I would be passing along some prayer items for Jim with regards to the focus of our prayer this week.
Still borrowing from last week’s message “What is God doing?”
Consider this: From last weeks’ scripture:
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. “
From Jim Thomas: With reference to the sermon last week from Pastor Jim and Tony Guerrero, following are items to that we can focus our prayers on this week:
Pray for Healing in the ministry. Hurts whether real or imagined by students, parents and volunteers would listen especially to this past Sunday’s scripture as God keeps showing it to me ….he is doing a new thing.
Pray that that message gets through and we are free to move on.
Prayer for the vision of the ministry. I have what I think is a very rough outline of what God is showing me but I want to accurately share with others the vision. So a more clear idea and also the best way to begin sharing his vision for the student ministry.
Now as an addition from this weeks’ sermon by Pastor Nelson, “When God Calls”:
1st Samuel 3:10
The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Are we as servants listening when God calls? We have all been called to obey his command in the verses above from Matthew. And we can start by making disciples of our youth.
I pose a question: Is God calling on you to come alongside Jim, his wife Sara and help out with the Youth Ministry needs? Please pray that you are listening if He is calling you to do so.
Thanks for all of your prayers guys.
