NEHEMIAH CHALLENGE: REBUILD (October 1 to November 21)
Nehemiah courageously led the rebuilding of the city wall in Jerusalem after it had been in ruins for over 141 years. By God’s amazing grace, the project was completed in just 52 days! What could the Lord do in our congregation if we truly gave a 100% effort towards His ministry for 52 days?
Worship 52 visitors
Discipleship 52 people committed to daily prayer and God’s Word
Stewardship 52 people join the Mission Support Team
25% of members commit to percentage offering
Family Life 5 new youth activities (children, middle school, high school, young
2 new ways to improve communication and assimilation
Outreach 5 “Matthew Parties”
2 Community projects
That is a God-sized list of goals; however, we unquestionably can accomplish this and even more if we are willing to step out in faith and seek God’s help.
NEHEMIAH CHALLENGE – UPDATE DAY #11
What can you do? Continue in daily prayer and study of God’s Word. That is our source of strength and daily direction. Continue to PRAY that God would put people on our heart that we can invite to church and/or share Christ’s love in a meaningful way.
Here are some great organizations that have websites for daily devotions: Our Daily Bread, Lutheran Hour Ministries, Lutheran Church Charities. Just open the Bible and let God speak to your heart!
How can you sign up or tell some good news? If you would like to be one of the 52 people committing to daily prayer and Bible reading, then you can email the church at email@example.com or call 781-826-5121. Also, please send an email or call to share any good news that happens as a result of this Nehemiah Challenge.
