REACHing Out Blurb for September 1, 2019


There is nothing quite like the sound of a group of guys who are seriously learning to be like Christ. I’m talking about the guys in the Watered Gardens FORGE program. Still rough around the edges and many of them just a month or two clean off of drugs, they seem to at times poses a childlike faith and wonder about Jesus that I rarely see. This past week as we drove from location to location blessing others with God’s Word, a listening ear, and prayer I couldn’t help smile at the conversation that was going on amongst them. They were together struggling to understand a certain piece of scripture, one of the parables of Jesus. How could these be the same guys that were the worst version of themselves just a few months ago? Easy. Someone made a conscience decision to pour time and energy into them, to stand with them at their weakest point and walk with them as they learn to truly follow Jesus. There is a person in your sphere of life that needs just the same care. It takes your time, but how can we expect people to change if we are not willing to give them the time and personal care they need?

Please consider becoming part of a Rescue Team - Mondays, 6:15PM @ Watered Gardens!

Because His Grace Is Amazing,
