Thank you so much for attending our Church Planting Equipping Workshop at Annual Conference, and for your interest in partnering with us in planting churches! More importantly, we thank you for agreeing to commit yourself to praying for this effort. Prayer is one of the most important and powerful tools for church planting, and we are excited to see what God is going to do over the next few years within the Friends movement.
We hope that you enjoy this "first edition" of our church planting newsletter and that you can use it as a resource as well as a prayer list. We will be keeping you up-to-date on the events, activities, and news surrounding church planting within EFC-ER and beyond.
This newsletter will feature targeted prayer requests with names of current and future church planters, the needs they may have, dates and news of events surrounding church planting, and ways that you and your church can help support this effort in practical ways.
We will have articles written by our church planting sub-committee team members as well as updates from pastors of church plants (as they happen). You will be able to read about the great work God is doing all over Eastern Region. We will also feature links to helpful resources for church planting and disciple-making from a variety of online sources.
Our greatest desire for this newsletter is to see the body of Christ united in prayer for something that is crucially important for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world: church planting.
Thank you for joining with us in fulfilling the Great Commission!
Every Pastor. Every Church. Every Heart. United in God's Mission.
