“The Sereer: Desperately Trying To Please God”

On Sunday, April 30, we will show this award winning film in our Sanctuary at 6:00 PM.   FILM SYNOPSIS The people of the Sereer tribe in Senegal, West Africa, live in an ancient culture that was historically steeped in Animism, Voodoo and spirit worship. In the past two centuries modern Islam has taken a stronghold here. Fewer than half of the Senegalese people live in the country’s eight major cities. The rest live in the bush. Life here is…

“Facing Darkness” Movie

About Facing Darkness As the Ebola pandemic was sweeping across West Africa in the spring of 2014, one organization was willing to step up and fully commit its people and resources to provide comfort, compassion, and care to the hurting people of Africa … all in the Name of Jesus. But when the deadly virus infected its own medical personnel, including Dr. Kent Brantly, the epic crisis truly hit home for Samaritan’s Purse and its leader Franklin Graham. FACING DARKNESS…

Pray for the Colemans

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day. Dan Coleman says he and his wife, Amanda, are “New Englanders who know New England.” As missionaries to their native culture, they intuitively created an outreach strategy contextualized to their community. From city officials to families with kids, members of Kennebec Community Church are constantly building relationships with the people around them. Running…

Pray for the Parrishes

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day. Kelly and Brandi Parrish started praying about church planting while living in Texas. It would mean leaving family, friends and the state they loved. One thing that helped during those transitional times was asking God to break their hearts for the people in Colorado, to birth love for the strangers who would soon…

Pray for the Dahls

During Jacob Dahl’s senior year of college at Washington State University, Jesus came into his life and changed him forever. So when the opportunity to plant a church on a college campus arose, Jacob and his wife, Jessica, jumped at the chance. Resonate Church seeks to befriend the lost—a large population at Central Washington University (CWU) in Ellensburg, since only 1 in 10 students are followers of Jesus. The best time to reach students is the beginning of the school…

Pray for the Carrs

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day. Ron and Kim Carr founded the International Learning Center (ILC), a missionary organization that takes a compassion-based approach to reaching internationals. Students take English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, undergo cultural training and learn about citizenship, health and other topics. Most importantly, the Carrs set up a supplementary reading course—a class where…

Pray for the Lenos

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day. Garth and Patty Leno had never considered planting a church. Garth had preached before as a minister on staff. But church planting? He and Patty were content inviting people into their Windsor, Ontario home for a Saturday evening Bible study. However, God began to reveal He had other plans. The Bible study outgrew…

Pray for the Robersons

As we observe the week of prayer for Annie Armstrong and our North American Mission Board missionaries, we will have a family to pray over each day.  Today, pray for the Robersons. As a Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) church planter, James Roberson and his wife, Natarsha, moved their family to unfamiliar Brooklyn to plant The Bridge Church. James trusted the Lord to open the right doors for him. “I just opened up the book of Acts and tried it,” he…
