Friendship Baptist Church Community Outreach

November 26, 2019

We are thankful for our ministry partnership with Pastor Emmitt Aniton and the historic Friendship Baptist Church on 6th Ave in Downtown Columbus. We were blessed to join them for their annual Saturday community outreach in September. I’ve never felt more welcomed by any church family than Nancy and I experienced that Saturday. We were given a VIP tour of the building and enjoyed learning their story of faithfulness as a family of faith. Taking the church outside of our buildings is an excellent opportunity to  share with our communities that the Church is not our lovely buildings built to the glory of God, but we his children worshiping, praising, and sharing hospitality and love with our neighbors. (Jn. 13:35) The morning kicked off at 10am with a welcome, worship, and praise under a tent. A message of Gospel encouragement was responded to by several rededications and new professions of faith. Mayor Skipper brought greetings from our City Council and encouraged more of this type of community outreach in our community by all churches. An excellent lunch followed with burgers, dogs, and all the trimmings.  There was an amazing video gamers van that the young and young of heart enjoyed. Quite an amazing Saturday morning in downtown Columbus. Let us know if you have community outreaches at your churches that we can join in with you.  You and your church family are always welcome to join our Take the City Unity Night of Prayer at 6:30 PM on the 3rd Friday and outreach on the 3rd Saturday each month. Mark December 21-22 on your calendar and plan to join us at 2910 2nd...

Redeem Outreach



During one of our outreaches this month we saw many miracles happen within our city. Prior to going out on the streets, we spent a while worshipping and praying. During that time, we asked God to show us what He wanted to do tonight. Everyone in the room heard something in relation to downtown Columbus. We finished praying and split into three teams. We drove downtown and began walking around, sharing the love of Jesus everywhere we went. Among our teams, we were able to minister to people in many different walks of life: atheist, homosexuality, and military families. The love of Christ knows no borders and is available for everyone. We saw many peoples’ hearts opened by the love of Jesus in us, and their hearts being delivered from bondage. We know the call on our lives is to love God and be radically obedient to His leading. We are seeing our team come alive as we go to the lost and experience what they were created for: being His hands and His feet.  Be Praying! We are still following up with those we met and are believing for great breakthrough!  Email Jessica Cronin at jessica@take-the-city.com to get...

7 Salvations in Phenix City!



On November 16th, we sent out six groups of people who are involved with various churches across the Chattahoochee Valley to share the love of the Lord with neighbors in Columbus GA and Phenix City AL. One group went across the river to a neighborhood near the church: Praise Ministry Tabernacle. As the group walked down the street, they came to a house and knocked on the door. The couple who answered were actually just friends of the people who owned the home. Our team talked with the couple and shared the love of Jesus with them. In the end, the woman gave her life to Christ! Later, the group encountered a 17 year old boy and his little brother. They too received the gift of the Gospel and prayed the prayer of salvation! About thirty minutes later, the team met four children: 3 boys and a girl. As the team shared the Truth of the Gospel with them, the Lord moved in their hearts, and they too prayed the prayer of salvation! What could have been just a normal, leisure Saturday in November turned into a powerful day of encountering people with Christ’s love. Many lives were ministered to and 7 people gave their lives to Christ! God be...

I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
