LAUNCH 2020
What is on your heart?
What troubles you in this lost and dying world we live in?

Where would you like to see change?
Where do you think we can bring light, life and hope to those around us?

Out of nowhere on November 15 God spoke to me the word “LAUNCH.”
I was so startled I thought someone else was in my home with me. I soon realized it was the Lord.  I asked Him what He meant by this word “LAUNCH.”  These are some of the things He said to me. In 2020 God is going to LAUNCH the Body of Christ ( that’s us) outside the walls of the church and into the harvest fields.  He is asking us to seek His face for divine strategies on how to reach the lost. He is asking us to search our hearts and to connect with what is on His heart. He is asking us to activate our passions or what out there troubles us and to ask Him how can we work together as a team to bring hope and the salvation message to those in our region.  Because He spoke this to me I believe He is speaking and stirring your hearts as well. This is not a one man/woman show but a KINGDOM MOVEMENT.  We will work together activating different teams, with mentorship, as the Lord leads
us to do different outreaches to the lost, dying, addicted, homeless etc.  What ideas is He speaking to you?  How can we reach the younger generations?  Please share any ideas by emailing them to fathershearthr@aol.com  This is not just a United Church outreach but a Kingdom Movement to LAUNCH the Body of Christ into the harvest fields so every believer is welcome to join in what God is doing.  Lena Garceau

SPECIAL STUDY
Being Human: Living with Limits
(Recommended book is Being Mortal; Medicine and What Matters in the End, by Atul Gawande).  People are living longer, growing old and aging, which is placing extraordinary demands on those who provide help at the end of life.  We are ill-prepared. What can people of faith do to serve others and to prepare for old age?
Six weeks, 2020 dates and location TBD

PRAISE AND PRAYER NIGHTS
Fridays 6:30pm and Sundays 6pm
At New Life Christian Church 34 Centre Dr.  Milton
We are praying for revival.  Revival of our love for the Lord.  Revival of our passion for our neighbors.  Revival always starts at the source. Our source is our Heavenly Father. Jesus gave us a great pattern. He would go to the Father, pray, get His mission and then act. If Jesus had to pray, I suppose we ought to. Please consider joining us. We will keep it to one hour. We will pray, praise and draw closer to the Lord and each other. Revive us Lord!
