Things Are Coming Back
Those of you who know me well can attest that I am an avid sports fan. As I consume NFL games on Sunday, Monday and Thursday, I can’t help but recognize how many people have reoriented themselves to coming back to stadiums to watch their favorite football team. Over the past 20 months we have seen so much isolation, physical distancing and depression. This pandemic has continued to teach us that church is much more than an hour and a half service on Sunday. More than ever it’s time for an awakening of the body of Christ in an effort to pray, serve and point South Florida to the hope that is only found in Jesus.
The transformation of South Florida has to be fueled and sustained by prayer. Let us pray for our friends, relatives, associates and neighbors. As we pray, we will ask God to heal the lostness, brokenness and pain of South Florida. So for the month of November, together with other local churches, we will pray for our region. Here is how you can join: (1.) Text the word “AWAKEN” to 844.986.4270 and (2.) Ask one friend, relative, associate or neighbor, “how can I pray for you this month?” We’re so excited to be regathering and reconnecting so that we may continue in our partnership in the gospel. We are called to the mission of pointing people to Jesus who brings HOPE to the lostness, brokenness and pain of our world.
On November 13 we will serve at a couple of schools in our area. I met with principal Williams at Driftwood Middle and Mrs. Miller, Director at Steps 2 Progress Learning Development Centre, and they will soon inform us how we can serve these schools in our community. Also, we will try to help pay the pre-school tuition for some single parents in our community. Help by Donating to the Love South Florida Fund.
Engaging The Bible Together
Lastly, we will be reading God’s word together as a church. For the month of November we will gain wisdom as we walk through the book of Proverbs during our weekly S.O.A.P. There are many ways to study the Bible; many different study methods and guides to help us get the most out of God’s Word. One popular and easy way of personally studying the Bible is by using a tool called S.O.A.P. You can also join our S.O.A.P. group on our church app. Download Here or search for “Metropolitan Baptist App” in your Apple iOS App or Google Play store.
