On Thursdays, we want to make you aware of a church planting effort in North America. Today, we’re excited to introduce Oaks Church to you. Being right down the road in Raleigh, they’re close to home and heart.
Wow, what a summer so far! The Lord is at work. There have been folks confessing Christ for the first time. AMEN! There have been people stepping outside of their comfort zone and sharing with folks regularly. AMEN! We have seen the power of God at work in our gatherings. AMEN! And the family is growing closer to one another. In fact, I had the privilege of prayer-walking with Nick Lamart on Saturday and he told me that “the love that the people of Oaks Church have for one another and for me is what drew me to Christ.” That’s EXACTLY what Jesus said would show the world who is his disciples are. Praise the Lord….
June 27th – June 29th – Highlights from hosting our first mission trip/partners in Raleigh: prayer-walked strategic apartment complexes and parks in our area, trained a great team from The IMPACT Movement, shared the Gospel with a dozen or so people, prayed for folks, had a cookout before our normal gathering and had the largest number in our gatherings the last two weeks since we started (outside of Easter)! We were so grateful to have Dustin and Erin Wilbanks from Hebron Baptist Church in Dacula, GA and their kids up here helping us this weekend. They invested in our people to press on in intentional disciple-making and helped us think through some next steps as we continue to grow.
Thank you for your participation, partnership and prayer. May the Lord be magnified as we continue to seek to unleash a disciple-making movement in our city and across the globe.
