Sunday Service in Budrio - Mission

Tomorrow we'll have our morning service
to worship God together and to proclaim
His Word in Budrio.

We are glad for the Lord's provision of the main room in
Le Torri dell'Acqua, the theatre&modern art-gallery right at the centre of Budrio, well known as a cultural meeting point.

At 10.00 am we'll enjoy our family time together with a lovely breakfast.

At 10.30 am we'll continue with Stefano our series on
Gospel, Community and Mission.

Jenny will lead the time with the little ones engaging on the same topic of Mission.

Together we'll see how Jesus' Great Commission is a call for the church
as a Gospel Community.
We'll see that together we are equipped by
the Spirit to build relationships, to share the Gospel and to introduce to the Community.
Tomorrow we'll begin our service with a time of prayer characterized by thanksgiving and casting a vision for God's work in our community.

We'll pray for the week from Monday the 24th to Sunday the 30th November when with our American friends from Agape Italia
we'll speak about the history and significance for today of Thanksgiving to more than 200 students from 5 middle and high-schools between Budrio and Molinella.
On Saturday and Sunday we'll also have special outreach events for kids and families with a Thanksgiving Service.

We'll also pray for our friends from the Church La Rocca,
an Acts29 church-plant in Imola.
They'll organise for the town two Thanksgiving meals on
Thursday the 20th and on Friday the 21st of November.
Last  year they had more than 100 locals who came to these outreach events!

As follow-up of the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) to which we participated last Sunday alongside 10 churches from our region, we'll continue to pray for "the end of the earth". Matteo will then introduce the situation in the Islamic State ISIS and 3 prayer points both for the Christians persecuted and for the persecutors.
