God is presently at work all over the world. As you read these words, God is purposefully and powerfully transforming lives in every nook and cranny of the globe. There is coming a day when we will sing the praises of our God in the great company of the redeemed from every nation, tribe, people and language (Rev. 7:9). And now, as God causes the gospel to go forth in power to all nations, He brings international glory to His name. Consider the words of Psalm 48:10, “As your name, O God, so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth.” Where God’s name is known, His praise is sure to follow.
God is at work all over the world…including our city - Kenosha, WI. He is actively orchestrating all things in our city, as the great Multi-Tasker, to bring glory to His name through the proclamation of the gospel. Over the last four months, God has been stirring people from CrossWay to be part of Christ the King Church in order to reach the people living in the downtown area of Kenosha with the gospel. Why? So that God’s praise would echo through neighborhoods like Frank, Allendale, Wilson, Harbor Park and Lincoln Park. Currently there are 92 adults and children who have verbally committed to being sent out by CrossWay to plant Christ the King Church. We are anticipating there will be more who commit to this work, but not many more. God is gathering those He has appointed for this task. Praise be to God!
The next CTKC Information meeting is on Saturday, May 18 from 7:00 to 8:30 at Reuther Auditorium. We will sing, pray and learn of Christ the King’s Core Value #3: Love for Others.
God has ordained prayer as a necessary means in carrying out His purposes. And when God’s people pray, our Father in heaven does not respond by giving his children serpents and scorpions but the good gift of the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him (Luke 11:11-13). Would you join us in asking our heavenly Father to pour out the Holy Spirit on this work so that the name of Jesus Christ would be magnified in downtown Kenosha?
Please be praying…
