Local Outreach

Sep 09, 2022

Read

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
–Micah 6:8

“Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.”
–1 Peter 2:12

Reflect

God’s expectation is that we will live our lives in a way that reflects His character. We are called to be His agents in the world, working for justice and showing compassion and mercy. Our good deeds and care for others is supposed to cause others to see and know Him.

  • Pray that God would use our Neighboring 101 training to cultivate our hearts for the poor and marginalized in the Triangle.

  • Ask him to lead many in our congregation to participate in that training this year.

  • Pray that we would see an increase in the number of Summit members who are participating in local outreach opportunities.

  • Pray that God would continue to give us access to our local prisons, so that the gospel would be preached to those who are incarcerated.

  • Ask God to lead individuals and small groups to come alongside prisoners, walking with them post-release.

  • Ask God to speak to you and show you where he wants to use you to demonstrate his concern for the weak and the vulnerable in your community.

  • Pray that many in our city will come to know the saving love of Jesus through our local outreach efforts.

  • Praying with kids? Have them pray, “God, let us shine your light in the darkness. Help us love those around us in the ways that they need love. Please use us to reach those in our city who don’t know you yet.”
