NEO Team Update 1-6-2020

Dear NEO Family,

Marla gave me the devotional book, Wisdom for Each Day, by Billy Graham, for my birthday. The devotional for last Saturday was one I spent some time contemplating and I would encourage you to do the same.

Revival Begins With You

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Matthew 4:17

If Christianity is important at all, then it is all-important. If it is anything at all, then it is everything. It is either the most vital thing in your life, or it isn’t worth bothering with.

So don’t give the lie to the Christian faith by professing Christ without possessing Him. Don’t lock the church door with the key of inconsistency and keep the lost from coming to Christ. Don’t hinder revival by your unbelief and prayerlessness. Don’t cheat yourself out of spiritual victory by allowing sin to imprison you. Seek God’s face and turn from your wicked ways. Then you will hear from heaven and true revival will begin – starting with you.

The Church holds the key to revival. It is within our grasp. Will we rise to the challenge? Will we dare pay the price? The supply of heaven is adequate for the demands of our spiritually starved world. Will we offer that supply to the hungry masses?

May the revival that the world needs begin in you – starting today.

Weather revision: Saturday’s sessions now at 1pm and 3pm!

Senior Adult Ministries Planning Session  /  January 25  /  9:30am  / at Regency Park

Kendall Moseley (TNT-Tried N True Director), Jami Sue Brandt (50’s and Wannabees Director), and I would like to meet with your local church leaders for a time of sharing best practices and planning ministry with senior adults on the District level. We don’t want to plan events no one is interested in. We want what we do to complement and strengthen what your local church is doing. Please RSVP to let me know who will be coming from your church. And if you cannot send someone to this meeting but have someone who would be a good contact for us for future communication, please send me that person’s name and contact information.

Grace and peace,



For Pastors…
