The kids are out of school and summer time is here! If I were to give these next few months a theme for Liberty First it would be “Reach Out!” We have already begun reaching out last month at our Block Party on Eagle Drive and we’ll continue to do that these next several weeks. Let me encourage every member to unite together as the family of God to share God’s love with others this summer! Who is it that God can use you to “Reach Out” to?
Our students will be going to “Reach Out” to various people in the Nashville, TN area June 13-18, and I believe the Lord will do a great work in us and through us; please pray with us for our student summer mission camp. We will be starting “M” night on June 8th and will continue “M” night the 2nd Wednesday of each month. “M” stands for missions and our ladies WMU will meet as well as our men’s brotherhood to discuss missions here in Liberty, missions across our state, nation, and world. We will be having our 2nd “Reach Out” block party on Saturday, June 25 at the Whispering Pines neighborhood park from 11am to 1pm. We will be sharing God’s love and inviting the unchurched to visit us at LFBC. Also our kids and students will “Reach Out” to various people here locally during Mission Week 2016 June 27-July 1. I’m looking forward to kicking off our Mission Week 2016 by having the Finnocchiaro family, missionaries to Vietnam, to share with us on Sunday, June 26 during our morning worship.
Some may ask why the emphasis to “Reach Out?” Well the answer is simple, we have a story to tell! The gospel message is the greatest, most powerful story anyone could ever share (Romans 1:16)! We can’t simply sit back and wait for people to come to us, we must take the initiative to “Reach Out” and show God’s love to others. I believe we must “Reach Out” because the world around us needs to see and hear about what we receive each time we meet together, we must take it with us. Every time you depart LFBC, “You are now entering the mission field.” Let’s all do our part this summer to “Reach Out!”
Love in Christ,
