Schools-Part 3

Isaiah 58:6-8
“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. 

Pray for these ministries who love schools and minister there often! Pray also about you can be involved in ministering to schools in our area.

1. Child Evangelism Fellowship-Good News Clubs. My son went to their after school program when he was in elementary school. It was a great way to reinforce what we were teaching at home and what he was learning at church. There kids there who heard the gospel in ways that they understand.Pray for CEF as they are gearing up for the Fall ministries.

2. Several local churches reach out to kids through a tutoring ministry. Pray as they build relationships with schools in their communities.

3. Community of Hope, Nehemiah Center and Forest Park Ministry reach out to kids in our school systems as well. Pray that they continue to have opportunity to share the gospel freely.

4. Montgomery Public Schools is always looking for tutors and helpers after school AT OUR SCHOOLS. Pray that the volunteers who are followers of Christ will be able to share the gospel in ways that the kids understand.


If you are prayerfully considering being a part of helping our schools, kids and administration, we have a training coming up on starting or honing up a tutoring ministry on July 27th and 28th here in Montgomery. Call Lisa Rose at 334-21-6794 or email her at lrose@mgmbaptists.org

Part 2 Schools

Sorry this weeks was delayed! I was out sick for 3 days with a bad cold. Back up and running!!

SCHOOLS Part 2
This week, pray for Montgomery Public School administrators, teachers and staff.
"The only way there will be change in our school system is if the community gets involved and serves our schools. We need the community." (from an MPS administrator at the Board of Education).
This includes our local churches.
Are you involved at our local schools? Is your church intentionally reaching out to your community school? If not, why not? MPS is begging our churches to participate.
Are you praying this week for the next school year?
If not, why not?

Challenge:
Be involved in your community's schools. Go meet the principal and pray with them. Pray over the classrooms. Pray outside the school. Pray for parents. Pray for the students.
Love our community schools.
Pray this verse over our schools this week...for all who work there and all who come through the doors.

Deuteronomy 6:7 “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”
