God is in control! I talked to someone the other day about fear in their lives. Fear comes when we have a hard time believing God is in control. That's why it is so important to keep a regular devotion time with Jesus. To live a spirit filled life we must be in fellowship with God. This will pour out in our relationships with others. And that fear is controlled by the Controller (Christ). Over the next three weeks I will be talking about this walk with God and how it affects those around us.
On Sept 10th Doug Montandon, our director of LOVE, INC, will come and share what we (The churches of Manteca) are trying to accomplish in our city (In the Name of Christ). God has Manteca on His heart. With that in mind- sometime this week pray for someone you see walking down the street or playing in the school playground, or in line at Walmart. Ask God to save them. Ask God to draw them to Himself in some way. Pray for their family, their job, their high PGE bill. Ask God to meet their needs. That's all. Then if that felt good- do it to someone else! Let's blanket our city in prayer!
Just for fun I thought I would let you know that our Sequoia Heights Softball Team won the the championship for our league in July!! We had a great time! Here's a picture:
SAVE the DATE: We are in the midst of nailing down the details for a youth World Changers Fundraiser. We will be removing some concrete and prepping to pour concrete (with Steve Willson's supervision) here at our facility to repair some of the slippery and cracked walkways. Many hands make light work, or something like that! This work will be happening Labor Day Weekend, Sept 2, 3, & 4. Please bring your strong friends, family, enemies, or anyone that is able to help with this work. Talk to Pastor Dan soon to tell him who will all be here ready to help! New Wednesday Night Teams begin in September!!! Future: Ignition Student Conference, Sacramento, December 28-30th Please Pray for Boldness for our students as they try to be witnesses for Jesus!!
