All In Prayer – Community

May 19, 2022

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25) 

At Browncroft, one of our distinctives is Life-Changing Relationships. We live this out through the spiritual habit of “Spend Time With Others,” particularly in small groups. Since one way people see the Gospel in real life comes from seeing the love of individuals who have Jesus at the center of their lives, we can be thankful for how God has built this community in the past and what He will do in the future.  

Lord, continue Your work in this church to build healthy and life-changing community.

Let’s take a moment to pray for the following areas: 

  • That Browncroft will be a church that creates an atmosphere where people feel welcomed and can experience Gospel-centered community.  
  • That God would raise up small group leaders to form new groups.  
  • That our small groups would continue to challenge people to go deeper in life-change in Jesus. 
  • That we would be a place that cultivates healthy friendships and relationships. 

Lord, continue Your work in this church to build healthy and life-changing community. May we live out the Gospel by loving people as You would.
