Easter: Our next #1AskAway Opportunity is Easter Sunday, 9 am 10:43 am. The house of God will be rockin’! We are earnestly seeking God to move so that 30 new believers go public through believer’s baptism.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”
Ephesians 3:20-21 4:1 NIV
Contagious Prayer: There’s only four Sundays until we raise the roof as 30 new believers go
public through believer’s baptism on Easter Sunday! I’m asking you to join me every Tuesday to fast and pray, asking God to bring this about. You can join in from 10:00-10:30 am every Tuesday until Easter on FaceBook Live for a time of worship, an encouraging word, and prayer. If you are unable to join us right at 10:00 on Tuesdays, no worries! You will be able to join in any time because the FB Live video will stay posted on our FB Page all week long. Click here for the video. Pray that the Holy Spirit breaks through in the lives of people! Let God hear our cry to save the lost!
Contagious Faith: God wants YOU to talk to a “red apple,” ripe to hearing and responding to the Good News that Jesus loves them, died and was raised to life so that they can also be raised to new life in Christ. This could be the month your friend, brother, sister, classmate, neighbor, work associate, or relative gives their life to Jesus so that He can raise them to new life. Let you Daring Faith in sharing the gospel help Encounter Church grow to an average of 500 worshippers by the end of 2018. That’s our church-wide goal and, together, we are moving closer to reaching it. Keep inviting and bringing every person God places on your heart. Your invitation can be the catalyst that introduces them to life in Christ!
On Easter Sunday, I believe God’s Spirit will speak to the hearts of the lost and say, “You’re next!” Make this Easter, unforgettable! Will one of your “red apples” be one that is baptized? Be bold! Be daring! Share the gospel and invite them to Easter Sunday!
Contagious Joy!: Everyone Is so excited as we continue to experience God moving among us, growing and connecting us to one another for one primary purpose; to see all people raised to life in Jesus Christ. Our new message series, “CONTAGIOUS,” begins this Sunday, March 4th , and will stoke the fires of God’s movement among us even more. We will walk alongside of followers of Jesus who were so caught up with what Jesus was doing among them that the joy of Jesus began spreading like wildfire, sweeping everyone up into new life in Christ. Among the Philippian church, joy became a contagious lifestyle that regularly, passionately rejoiced in seeing people raised to life in Christ.
This is our rallying cry at Encounter Church, that we regularly, passionately rejoice in seeing people raised to life in Christ. I pray you will be infected with the joy of Jesus, and become contagious, spreading the joy of Jesus to everyone in which you come into contact!
DARING FAITH: We are wrapping up the 14th month of our 36-month spiritual growth and
giving campaign. God is doing miracles among us! There’s still time for you to jump on
board if you have not already. What will you commit of your time, talents, and treasures for
these remaining 22 months? Whatever your commitment, God will bless and multiply it into
the lives of so many, just don’t wait. Make your Daring Faith commitment today. If you would
like to talk through any questions you may have, please don’t hesitate to text or call me at 636-692-8680 or visit Give. You will find no better eternal investment that yields new people regularly being raised to life in Christ than your church, Encounter Church.
Worship with “Love Lifted Me”!

Contagious Calling : This is your calling, to partner with your brothers and sisters in Christ through your church, Encounter Church, to do greater things than you can think of to “ask or imagine according to his power that is at work within us to him be glory in the church.” God designed His church in such a way that through your partnership in the church, His church would change the world. This is your calling. This is your time to rise up, step into your calling, and become contagious, infected with the joy that comes from being part of something so much bigger than yourself.
Be contagious! Spread His joy!
