He is not here; he has risen!

Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:

~Luke 24:6~


  • Matthew 17:24-21
  • Matthew 21: 19-22
  • James 1: 2-8
  • “What is lacking in my prayer life is . . . . “

Our mission field begins in Kentwood!

This is awareness and action to help people in our area. through prayers and/or actions. It can be personal or for a group outreach. It can be as simple as picking up some limbs in your neighbor’s yard after a big wind or taking a friend to the doctor or more involved such as planning meals for someone for a long period of time of serious illness or following an accident. There are no reports to turn in and nobody needs to be updated periodically. Simply recognize a need you or your group can meet and meet that need.

Some ideas to spark your thinking:

*Taking garbage cans to the road and back in weekly for your neighbor and/or elderly friend

*Picking up a newspaper from the yard and placing it by the door for a neighbor

*Placing a daily call at a specific time to someone who lives alone

*Returning a lost child who has wandered into your yard

*Letting a neighbor know his child, dog, cows, etc. are in your yard

*Giving your neighbor mail your received

*Having a hot meal ready for someone who has been sitting in the hospital on a daily basis

*Cut your neighbors grass when you cut your grass

I think you get the idea. Remember, it is the little things that count most.


Pray God opens your eyes and hearts to see needs and take care of them when you can. They don’t have to be major needs, just needs. It doesn’t have to involve spending money, mainly time. Begin by praying for God’s leadership.
