CPP joins area-wide men’s work day Tuesday, May 12 2009 

Here’s an update by Dale Walker on our participation in the upcoming men’s workday on Saturday May 16th 2009:
Hey Guys,
Please talk up this Saturday’s workday in your services, classes, etc. We have a number of projects lined up and are hoping for 200 men to show up at the Pentecostals of the Twin Cities this coming Saturday at 7 AM. We will have biscuits and juice and then divide up to different work assignments.
These are some of the projects planned. There may be others and we will get the final list next Saturday AM.
  • Weatherize homes for elderly
  • Pick up trash and tires from city streets and ditches (dress appropriately)
  • We need between 25 – 50 men to clean up around abandoned houses in Richwood (we need 12 -15 chain saws, heavy duty weed eaters, hedge trimmers, garbage bags, etc.) We will also burn trash around these houses (without burning the houses downnnnnnnnn.)
  • Michael Key has asked that we help clean out a house in Tanglewood that will be used for a community center
  • We will do as many tasks as we have men to do
  • Please bring your own gloves, bug spray, drinks and snacks
EVERYONE IS ASKED TO WEAR A YELLOW SHIRT. THIS IS GOING TO BE AN ONGOING REQUEST THAT WHEN WE CHURCHES WORK TOGETHER WE ALWAYS WEAR THE “YELLOW SHIRTS”. HOPEFULLY IT WILL CATCH ON AND GOD WILL BE PRAISED BECAUSE “THOSE YELLOW SHIRTS ARE SERVING IN THE COMMUNITY AGAIN!”
We will return to the Pentecostals for Bar-B-Que chicken dinner before leaving around 1PM.
Have a wonderful day,
Dale Walker

Community Prayer Partners focuses on community transformation Thursday, May 7 2009 

On this National Day of Prayer – May 7, 2009 – Community Prayer Partners gathered with Christians from all over the area to pray at a breakfast in the Monroe Civic Center.freshencountercover

The theme,  from Nehemiah’s writings,  emphasized our ongoing vision –  to help transform Northeast Louisiana into a spiritual epicenter that radiates the love of Christ into our nation.

In our continuing trek toward true spiritual revival, and toward the heart of God, we’re planning to read together the book by Richard & Henry Blackaby entitled Fresh Encounter.

Read this book with us, and return to this blog to see discussions by our members and others interested in revival for Northeast Louisiana.

Blessings.
