Celebrating and Sharing the Light of the World

An Advent Reading & Prayer Schedule

 

Dear Church Family, 

As we celebrate the Light of the World this Christmas season, we invite you to take this month to pray together with us for those who yet remain in darkness. We would like to give you ‘Loving the Lost,’ a one-month prayer guide for unreached peoples from the International Mission Board. 

Each day introduces an unreached people or place, and invites us to intercede for the light of the gospel to break into their darkness. Copies of ‘Loving The Lost’ are available at the HOPE Desk, and will also be distributed during the Great Commission Prayer hour this coming Sunday.

In addition, if you do not have a Bible reading plan for this season, I invite you to join us in following along with an Advent reading schedule in the days leading up to Christmas. This schedule can be found below, or in the new Bible reading plan feature in our OBC app. This Bible reading plan begins on December 1 and will take you to Christmas morning.

As we celebrate Christmas, may your heart rejoice at the hope that is yours in Christ. And let us not forget those who are in darkness. Let us pray, give, and witness so that those who yet remain in darkness may know the grace of our Lord.

Pastor Ben
