The Weekly Connection
for the week following  
December 6, 2017

Please be in prayer for our  
Toy Store Ministry this weekend - that it reaches lost souls for our Lord and    
Savior, Jesus Christ. 
Also, pray for the pastors, volunteers, and staff as they see the opportunities that are placed before them in witnessing to these families.

Lessons Learned in the Dark

This Leader Kit contrasts the evidences of walking by faith and walking by sight and encourages participants to:
  • take risks instead of playing it safe;
  • give God control rather than seeking to remain in control;
  • persevere through hardship instead of quitting;
  • receive God's gifts versus rejecting God's goodness;
  • be guided by the Truth rather than feelings;
  • seek God instead of seeking deliverance from difficulty.


All churches need to seriously pray and start their own Culture Impact Teams within their churches.  These Resource Manuals are at the NSRBA Resource Center for you to pick up and keep.
