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...

Testimony “Being apart of Take the City has blessed my life”

March 29, 2016

    This past weekend we had such powerful time of worship and intercession as Eddie James Ministries partnered with us to lift up the name of Jesus and declare His goodness in our city. On Saturday, we had over 26 different churches unified to stoke the fires of worship and intercession.  We also sent out over 160 people to over 10 different locations to love and bless the community with the good news. As a result we recorded 32 salvations, 8 healed, 124 people fed and 211 people prayed for. We believe that what God is doing in our city is only a small piece to the puzzle of His great plan of redemption all through out this world. We’re so grateful that we get to play a role in making a difference in peoples lives this city and in the nations. Here’s a testimony from Currey Mawer, who attend Take the City this past month: “Being apart of Take the City has really blessed my life. This past weekend I was apart of God’s work in the city of Columbus, GA. It was amazing to see the Holy Spirit move in the lives of the broken and lost. It only took my willingness to go out there and see it happen. It only took me lowering my needs for others. It only took living like my Christ Jesus that did has his Father lead him. In the simplest of prayers I witnessed breakthrough of the Kingdom of God in to the this earth. Through the love of the Father, the authority of Jesus name and the presence...

My experience with the Take the City crew was like coming into a family.  Our team was welcomed in with open arms with like-hearted believers who love Jesus and have laid down their lives to serve the broken of the city! It was an honor to come alongside them, be welcomed into their homes, share meals, and experience the transformational work that God is doing in and through them to see His Kingdom come.
