United in Prayer

June 21, 2019

What is United in Prayer? United in Prayer is an initiative of Take the City which unifies local believers for worship and intercession to prepare the way for lives to be transformed by the love and power of Jesus. Come join us as we intercede for the Chattahoochee Valley! What does the Church need today? “What the Church needs to-day is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more and novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use — men of prayer, men mighty in prayer. The Holy Ghost does not flow through methods, but through men. He does not come on machinery, but on men. He does not anoint plans, but men — men of prayer.” ― E.M. Bounds, Power Through...

Community Outreach – Chattahoochee Valley

June 14, 2019

During our May Community Outreach Day, a team of 8-10 people went to the Elizabeth Canty Apartments to share the Gospel. The team split up into groups of two or three. A couple teams went around to different apartments while the others set up a table to pass out 200 slices of pizza! While they were there, one of the leaders, Tre Rager, and a friend encountered a man, who was known as the father of the neighborhood. Tre and his friend prayed that God would increase the man’s wisdom as a father and allow him to minister to more and more people in his neighborhood. A little while later, they encountered a few teenagers. Tre received a word of knowledge that one of the teenager’s parents had been praying for her to have a stronger faith in God. Tre shared this with her and her eyes grew wide. She couldn’t believe that God could show up in this way! She listened intently, wanting to know everything God had to say to her. Tre and his friend shared about Jesus and asked if they could pray for her. As they prayed over the girl, her eyes welled up with tears. God really spoke to her and ministered to her heart. Sometimes all we need to do is stop for the one, and God will do the...

Would your Church like to become a Lifehouse Ministry Partner?



Thanks to Pastor Chuck Hasty and Grace Presbyterian Church for becoming our first Lifehouse Ministry Partners at our Bradley Circle Lifehouse. What a blessing and encouragement they are to Andrew and Ellen and their community ministry. They donate monthly to fund the cookouts and community outreach, work diligently in the community garden, and lead the Fall and Spring home Bible studies and discipleship. We are praying for God to call out three additional Lifehouse Ministry Partners this summer. We currently have two completed Lifehouses that stand in need of a Church like yours to step into these ministry opportunities to plant and plow in God’s kingdom in East Highlands on 26th St and in Bibb City on Young Ave.   Our third ministry opportunity is a house in South Columbus on Garden Dr. off Cusseta Rd. This house is waiting for revitalization and repairs to make ready for an urban missionary family to become a neighbor and share the light and love of Jesus through prayer, encouragement, cookouts, community outreach, and home Bible studies.  Your Church family can invest in remodeling the kitchen and bathroom, replacing doors and windows, and installing an HVAC system. Please contact me, Louis Chalmers at louis@take-the-city.com  or Andrew Chalmers at andrew@take-the-city.com to learn more about how your Church family can become a LifeHouse Ministry Partner with Take the...

My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
