Reaching the Lost World in the Midst of Persecution

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

 

-Matthew 9:36-38


The Persecuted Church

  • Now through Sun, Mar 10

    There will be a special exhibit in the foyer highlighting the history and current state of persecution around the world, particularly its recent acceleration in China. We encourage you to read, pray, and reflect as you learn more.

  • Sat, Mar 9, and Sun, Mar 10

    The weekend of March 9 and 10, we will focus on the persecuted church during our worship services. We will have a guest teacher and testimonies from international partners at both Saturday and Sunday services.

  • Sat, Mar 10 | 7:00 PM

    Join us Sunday night at 7:00 PM for a Global Missions Night to hear more from those partners. This event will be a time for us to come together as the church and pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ suffering for the sake of the gospel.

 

Persecution in the global church is a bleak and widespread reality. Still, God makes it clear that it is part of His plan.

 

As the body of Christ, we are called to uphold, through prayer, our brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering for their faith. As we pray for them, we should acknowledge the sovereignty and grace of God that prevails in all our of lives, especially in suffering.
