21 Days of Prayer
Take the 21 Day Challenge to start the New Year
2019 is here and we are challenging you to commit the first part of your year to developing yourself spiritually. Every year, millions of people make promises, to themselves and those they love, to change for the better. Yet they break those promises a few weeks (or sometimes days) later. We spend so much energy looking for our best life, but maybe we’re looking in the wrong place!
Jesus said in Mark 8:34–35 ESV, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” Jesus is saying that seeking your own best interest will never work. He’s saying you will never find the peace, the satisfaction, and the life you’re looking for, by looking for it! He’s saying the only way to find what you’re truly looking for is to find it in Him. Again in Matthew 6:33 ESV, Jesus makes a similar promise: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Do you want 2019 to be the best year of your life? If so, commit to making it your best year spiritually. Make a decision, here and now, to seek Jesus with your whole heart and watch as He begins to transform every area of your life! There is no better investment you could make in yourself and in your family than to put God first in this way. That’s why we can confidently say this will be the best year of your life, if it’s your best year spiritually.
So we are challenging you to pray, fast in some way, and read your Bible each day for the first three weeks of the New Year! Read today’s devotional, or click here for the 2019 21 Days of Prayer information booklet.
New “This Is Us” Series
Sundays at 9 & 11am
Almost 2,000 years ago on the other side of the planet a small group of people began a movement that changed the world. Today, Evangel exists to continue that movement.
But have you ever wondered why we do what we do? What makes us unique among so many churches in our city? Where do I fit in?
Join us each Sunday in January at 9 or 11am as our lead pastor, Tim Gross, shares a brand new series of messages that will answer these questions and more.
Experience the Watoto Children’s Choir
Sunday | January 20 | 9 & 11am
We’re excited to welcome the Watoto Children’s Choir performing, “We Will Go.” As the children share their personal stories and present live worship music from Uganda, you’ll see firsthand the power of God’s love transforming lives around the world.
Come and see their smiles and hear their message of hope: “It’s possible to have joy, to laugh and to have hope, no matter what you’re going through. Look at what God’s done in my life.”
If you are interested in being a host family for two members of the choir and a chaperone, please email Pastor Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org.
