Thankful for LifeHouse Volunteers and Partners

November 23, 2020

During this season for Thanksgiving, we give thanks to the Lord for the many volunteers, donors, and ministry partners that have contributed energy, time, sweat, and resources to complete our Lifehouses on Bradley Circle (Bibb City), Young Avenue, and 26th Street (East Highlands). The past 3+ years, we have had 4 urban missionary families who have been able to live, serve, and share the love, joy, and peace of life found in Jesus Christ. God willing in 2021 we plan to complete renovations of our Garden Dr. Lifehouse, recruit another urban missionary family, and identify additional houses in communities that we serve during our monthly outreaches. We are prayerfully asking that you and your church family considers becoming LifeHouse partners with us in 2021. You can help by volunteering for a workday and ministry outreach at one of our Lifehouses or by adopting a LifeHouse renovation project and donating funds, materials, and labor to complete it.  Listed below are renovation projects for our Garden Dr. you can adopt: Carpentry repairs roof and doors                                             $ 5,000 Plumbing Kitchen, Bath, and Laundry rooms                            5,000 Install HVAC system                                                                        5,900 Purchase Light fixtures                       ...

2020: THE CHALLENGE AND THE SOLUTION

September 30, 2020

PART ONE: THE CHALLENGE SOUNDS FAMILIAR… Riots. Disease. Politics. Racism. Poverty. Division. These words surface in the minds of many, like a google search predictor, when considering America in 2020. Interestingly, they also adequately describe Israel at the time of Christ. Romans oppressed the Jews. The sick and the poor littered the public squares. Hate crimes were committed openly in the streets by Roman officials. Jews were either corrupted by the Roman authorities or formed rebel groups aimed against them in retaliation. Division wasn’t limited to Jew against Roman, however. Even Jews harbored bitterness for other Jews. In the midst of all the turmoil were many religious teachings, philosophies, and politics that infiltrated the culture, but not one of them offered real solutions. Sound familiar? LOVE YOUR ENEMIES I want you to really catch the similarities here. Take a moment. Let it sink in. Now imagine Jesus… that’s right, Jesus… in the flesh, stepping into our current predicament. What would he say to us? I think he would say much of the same things He did then! Yes, Jesus would absolutely preach on righteousness and judgment, and Republicans would love it. He’d also preach on social justice and the Democrats would applaud it. He wouldn’t stop there, though. He’d then proceed to tell us stories like that of the Good Samaritan where a Samaritan man shows great compassion for someone who had been beaten and left for dead. It’s significant that Jesus chose a Samaritan to be the protagonist in this story because the hearers would have been Jewish; Jews despised Samaritans more than any other people group. It...

Stop for the One – Online Outreach Challenge

July 30, 2020

Description of Outreach Challenge On Saturday July 18, we had an online outreach. We shared about what is coming up locally with Take the City as well as delivered an outreach challenge. The challenge was to “Stop for the One”, to identify one person you would pray for or share the Gospel with this week. Several people had powerful encounters with people in a grocery store or simply walking outside at the park. The following is one of those stories. Stopping for the One  Stephanie watched online and commented on Facebook that she would stop for the one. The next day, she arrived at the grocery store in Columbus, GA. Among other things, she had the challenge on her mind. Before she got out of the car, she asked God to show her ‘the One whose heart He was working on’. She roamed around the store for several minutes, picking up the various food items she needed. Having found everything, she walked back to the front to wait in line to check out. As she stood there, she noticed a man off her right shoulder. He began talking to her, and shortly into their conversation, she knew she had found the ‘One’ that she was meant to stop for. Johnny’s Story Johnny was sharing how he had gone to church that morning for the first time in 10 years! He explained that he had dealt with a lot of loss. He lost both his wife and brother on the same day several years ago. The pain he felt from their deaths had led him into a sinful life. He...

TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
