Endurance

RPC
RPC

Colossians 1:11-12

"being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light."

Our God is a mighty God and He makes mighty promises! One of the promises that the team has been standing on recently, especially in this time of transition is for endurance. God’s word says that He will strengthen us with all power according to His glorious might so that we may have great endurance and patience.

It is so comforting to know that though the team is in various stages of transition, whether packing on the East Coast or unpacking on the West, we don’t have to do it in our own strength. Even better, our God will strengthen us with all power, not just some, but all according to His glorious might! Would you stand with us in prayer for the endurance that can only come from our God’s glorious might?

We thank God for each and every one of you daily. Thank you for taking the time to lift us up in prayer. Your prayers are powerful and effective! If you have a prayer request, please email us so we can lift you up in prayer. The team prayer call is every Saturday and we would like to extend an invitation to you! To receive the weekly prayer points and the prayer call information, please sign up here to be a prayer partner. We hope to hear you on the call!

BOLDNESS

RPC
RPC

Ephesians 6:19

Pray on my behalf, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

 If Paul had to ask for prayer for boldness in proclaiming the gospel, how much more should we? We live in a culture that promotes boldness in the areas of achievement, advancement, and self-expression. Go big or go home. Shoot for the stars. Yet, when it comes to sharing the good news of the Gospel, boldness is often hard to find.

 Last Sunday, the team was commissioned at Grace Covenant Church and now we begin the transition from the East coast to the West. As some of us begin this journey, and others find themselves settling into LA, please pray that the Holy Spirit would give us the boldness to proclaim the truth of the gospel!

 Renew Church LA is being built on a foundation of prayer and we are so thankful to have people from all over the country praying for us and with us!

If you need prayer, leave us a note for how we can pray for you and we will lift you up!

Abundance of Love

RPC
RPC

“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

1 John 3:18 NIV

Thank you everyone for praying for the team these past couple of months. There has been a lot of growth, unity, and an abundance of grace in the team! Your faith joined with ours has been moving mountains and we've been experiencing so many revelations and blessings. He’s given us great boldness and courage to speak the gospel outside of our comfort zone, opened up job opportunities that only can be explained through the power of God, provided financial support for staff and church operations and is unifying the team everyday as a family. With all of these praise reports, we can only get more excited about what He has in store for Renew Church in West L.A.

We know many of you are covering us in prayer and praying with us weekly on our prayer calls which have made a huge impact. Let’s keep the momentum going by focusing our prayers this week on an Abundance of Love. Please join us in prayer so that God overwhelms us with His love for our team, the City of L.A., and all the people we’ll encounter. God’s love for each and every one renews us - transforms us into selfless sons and daughters who then go and spread Our Father’s love to others. Just as the scripture above states, we don’t want to love with words, but with our actions.

Our prayer points for the next week are:

- Revelation and insight on how to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to West Los Angeles

- Grace, knowledge, and wisdom in our ministries

Please also continue to pray for protection and perseverance over our core team as we prepare for launch. The team is doing prayer calls every Saturday and we would like to extend an invitation to you! To receive the weekly prayer points and the prayer call information, please sign up here to be a prayer partner. We hope to hear you on the call.

Blessings,

Impartation

RPC
RPC

“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” - Philippians 4:9 NIV

Over the past couple of weeks, we have been amazed and honored to have so many of our friends and family join us in prayer. This means a lot to us and we want to continue to stand together in faith as God moves. To start off, we have a praise report. As a core team, we are growing! Our team has expanded with new members and God is providing the financial support for church operations and initial staff. We want to thank everyone for their prayers over these past couple of weeks. It truly is as E.M. Bounds says in The Necessity of Prayer, “Prayer projects faith on God, and God on the world. Only God can move mountains, but faith and prayer move God.”

Seeing the impact of all of our prayers being focused, this week we want to focus our prayers on Impartation. Please join us in prayer for knowledge and wisdom from the Holy Spirit as we grow as a team in our ministries and our individual walk with Jesus.

Our prayer points for the next week are:

- Revelation and insight on how to bring the gospel to a postmodern, liberal, post-Christian area of West Los Angeles.

- Grace, knowledge, and wisdom in our ministries.

- Strength to execute all that we learn from the Holy Spirit.

Please continue to pray for protection and perseverance over our core team as the enemy continues to attack us. The team is doing prayer calls every Saturday and we would like to extend an invitation to you! To receive the weekly prayer points and the prayer call information, please sign up here to be a prayer partner. We hope to hear you on the call.
