Cheeks’ Challenge-July 2019 Newsletter

 
Henry Blackaby author of the bestselling book, Experiencing God, stated, “Find out what God is doing and join him!”
 
Just the other day I was at breakfast with a group of Newton County Pastors. A discussion ensued about a strategy to reach a new community. Many ideas were discussed such as block parties, door to door, etc.
 
Chad Caldwell, Pastor at Journey church stated, “We have left something out, prayer!” He then began to tell us that God had impressed upon him to call his church to prayer and suspend Bible study prior to the morning worship service each week. They have been doing this for several weeks and they are asking God to do what only He can do in their lives and the church.
 
Talk about a God sighting!
 
God is at work everyday and I am already hearing reports of raindrops of his blessings to our churches even as we are in the middle of strategic planning for our Association of Churches.
I have been sharing the outcome of our process which is, “Stone Mountain Baptist Association of Churches starts and strengthens churches to ignite spiritual awakening.”
Join me in praying that God will ignite spiritual awakening among our churches!
