Also this Sunday, if you requested a Basket of Blessings, please go ahead and pick up the basket labeled with your name from along the stage after the service. Let’s all continue praying this week for these 37 unsaved moms, as they receive baskets and have contact with ladies from BRBC!

Praying Together
David Watson, home from college and with us today, is heading out tomorrow on a missions trip to the Philippines for the next two weeks! Let’s join together and petition our Father for strength despite weakness, protection, being used powerfully by God, and more!

Sharing Your Faith & Testimony
Continuing in “Discipleship of the Heart,” Pastor Jack spent a second week on sharing our faith in Jesus with others, featuring a great interview panel. Our own Bijan Gilanshah, Josh Johns, and Roz Custard shared their testimonies of how the faithful witness of others helped bring them to faith in Jesus. Remember – we are just beggars telling other beggars where to find bread! Listen to “Sharing Your Faith & Testimony.” Click here for the evangelism training sermon Pastor Jack referenced from 2017, “The Calling We Extend.”
