Reading Plan for next week’s message

SundayProverbs 1-2
MondayProverbs 3-4
TuesdayProverbs 5-6
WednesdayProverbs 7-8
ThursdayProverbs 9-10
FridayProverbs 11-12
SaturdayProverbs 13-14

Memorize/Reflect:  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 9:37-38)

Prayer Direction:  Thank God for the people He placed in your life to pray for you and share His love with you. Ask God to use you to share His gospel, the good news of Jesus with family and friends.

“Live It!” Challenge – See the Sheep: Take time in the coming week to stop somewhere that you tend to move through quickly. It could be a mall, an airport, a grocery store, or any place you go often and tend to move through at a rapid pace. Take ten minutes, slow down, find a place to sit, and pray that God will help you see people the way He does. Pray, “God, let me see people like sheep without a shepherd…loved and lost.” Let God grow your heart toward the lost to be like His heart.

Growth Group Discussion: 

    1. Who is a person that prayed for you and reached out to you with God’s love before you were a follower of Jesus? How has this person’s faith and their expressions of God’s love increased your faith?
    2. Who is one person God has placed in your life that needs to know the love and grace of Jesus? What are ways you are reaching out to this person and seeking to share the love and message of Jesus
    3. Read: Matthew 9:35-38. How does Jesus feel about people who are still far from Him and wandering in their sin? What are ways we can grow a heart more and more like Jesus when it comes to how we see people still wandering in sin?
    4. What is the focus of what Jesus calls us to pray in this passage? How can we embrace this prayer and Jesus’ vision to send believers out into the harvest fields? What helps move us outward with the gospel? What holds us back?
    5. Read: Matthew 28:18-20. What is the difference between making “Disciples,” and making “Converts”? How can we actively enter into the process of helping new believers grow into maturity in their faith?
    6. Read: Acts 1:7-8. What is the source of our power to live out God’s mission and plan for our lives? How can we connect more closely to this power supply?
    7. What is your “Samaria”? (This is the place or people that need Jesus but you tend to avoid them). What is one way you can take a step into your Samaria and bring the love and message of Jesus to people that are often avoided.

Angel Tree Is Here!

On November 26, 2013, in Community Outreach, Featured-Auto, by CommunityOutreach

Angel12WEB

Will you introduce prisoners’ children to Jesus and give them a Christmas they’ll never forget?

Christmas is quickly approaching! And this year, Angel Tree aims to reach 425,000 children of prisoners who yearn for their absent parents’ love and hope for even just one Christmas filled with joy. They are in desperate need of a loving Savior who will fill the void in their hearts and who will bring complete restoration to their families broken by crime.

You can help a child by going to the Community Outreach Booth this Sunday, December 1st and picking either a family (go in together with your Growth Group, friends or family members) or an individual Angel from our tree. Register that Angel with the volunteer at the tent. Then, go out and buy 2 gifts that are listed on the Angel, wrap them up and bring them back to church by December 15th. These gifts are given to the child as if the incarcerated parent was giving it to them.

If you would like to help deliver the gifts to the children on Saturday, December 21st from 9-12p here at Shoreline Community Church or help at the party in Salinas at the Emmanuel Bilingual Baptist Church from 1-3p, where some of the gifts are given out by Santa, please contact us at communityoutreach@shorelinechurch.org.

Thank you for helping to bring hope and the word of Jesus Christ to a child who is desperate for His love!
In His Name,
Debra Federico and Sharon Burwell

Angel Tree

On November 30, 2010, in Community Outreach, by CommunityOutreach

Angel Tree – starting now through December 11th (delivery day)

Many children in Monterey county will be spending this Christmas at home, while their mother or father is in prison. These children may have witnessed things like homelessness, domestic violence, or even drug abuse. Although the parents may be in prison, their children suffer greatly as well. When Christmas comes around, Angel Tree reminds these children that they are very much loved.
Since its creation almost thirty years ago, Angel Tree has been providing Christmas gifts to children with incarcerated parents. First, the parents who want to be a part of the program sign up and write down the name and age of their child, as well as a gift their child wants. Churches who want to be a part of the program are then assigned the children and church members pick the child or children they want to provide the gift for and purchase that item. One week prior to Christmas, the gift is delivered to the children with a personal message from their parent included with it.

Shoreline Community Church has been teaming up with Angel Tree for a number of years. Right now,  you can participate in this amazing ministry and bless both a parent in prison and a child this Christmas. Simply pick up an angel in the lobby and purchase the requested gift. You may choose to either deliver it yourself or let our volunteer team deliver the gifts, as we meet together on Saturday, December 11th, our delivery day. You may also sign up at the booth to be solely a delivery person rather than purchase the gifts. Gifts can be dropped off at the church until December 11th.

If you have any more questions about Angel Tree, please call the church, or check out the Angel Tree official website: http://www.angeltree.org/deliverlove
