Breakfast Update – August 27, 2014

Posted by in City Mission - News | August 28, 2014

City Missionaries,

Summer is almost over and soon the smell of pancakes will be floating through the air on Saturday mornings in the communities we have been called to reach with the gospel. I don’t know about you but I am pretty excited about that!

Breakfast starts back up on Saturday, September 6 and we will now be serving and sharing in three locations: Indian Village, Villages at Lincoln, and now Jamestown Place! We are able to start at Jamestown because a great church, Parkway House of Prayer, has a huge heart for missions and they will be heading up that entire location by themselves. Ed Wyatt is the leader for that group and he is also on the Core Team of City Mission. Ed has a special burden for local missions and has been serving and training at our Indian Village location. They will launch at Jamestown on September 6 with a strong team and a large neighborhood to reach. Let’s all be praying that many come to saving faith in Christ this fall because of their willingness to be used by God.

As always, we are praying for more volunteers and groups to come and participate at all of our locations. Our greatest need this fall is for a group to come forward and take on one Saturday a month at Villages at Lincoln. (September-December) Four Saturdays is not much when you think about the kids and families that will be impacted by the gospel and how big of a difference it will make in someone’s life. Please join us in praying for this and share this need with your friends who may have a heart to serve Jesus in this way.  Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

We will be teaching through The Story of the Bible this fall at all three locations. The idea is to give kids who have never heard, the chance to grasp the big picture of the Bible…the picture of redemption…the picture of Jesus. We are praying for many to come to saving faith and we even have a baptism planned for each location on Saturday, December 20th! If that does not get you excited then I don’t know what will.

Please do remember that City Mission relies on the generosity of volunteers to keep the mission moving forward.  This is a great investment!  Since we are focused on relational and sustainable community missions we have very little overhead but a very big impact in the communities we serve.  You or your group can support City Mission financially to help cover the cost of breakfast supplies. Gifts of every size are needed and appreciated.  Making a donation to City Mission is an easy way for you to get involved in reaching the tougher communities in Roanoke with the message of Jesus.  You can give by sending a check to ‘City Mission’ – PO Box 204  Roanoke, VA 24002.    These donations are tax-deductible. Please pray about what recurring, monthly gift that God would have you give!

Have a great fall season on mission with Jesus!
