October Day of Prayer
Day of Fasting + Prayer.jpg

This is an exciting time in the life of our church. I covet your prayers so that we might follow the Lord, so that his way might be straight in front of us, and so that he might be glorified as we delight in him.

Please join me in praying for the following this month:

  • Please pray for the sale of the Robinwood property. We are waiting on the Lord and the city of West Linn. Please pray that the sale will move forward and close as early as December 14.

  • Please pray for our recovery houses. Please pray that the men would follow Christ, that they would feel welcome in life groups, and that they would find enough mentors.

  • Please pray for the executive team as we establish a 2019 budget. Please pray also for our selection of elders for the next year.

  • Please pray for our initial steps toward the next church plant. Please ask the Lord for his favor and for unity as we explore what is next. 

  • Please pray for decisions regarding the house in Wilsonville. 

  • Please ask for God’s favor for the launch of the West Linn women’s ministry on Thursday.

  • Please pray for AWANA to get the necessary volunteers and to make a difference in the lives of young people.

  • Please pray for an open door for the gospel and that we might speak the mystery of God clearly as we ought. Pray that will use our time well. And, that we will have our speech always seasoned with grace.

  • Please pray that God would remind us of our need for the gospel. And that we would believe the gospel as we grow in Christ.

  • Please pray for ministry teams that, not only would they have a great attitude while they serve, but that they would do it in relationships.

  • Please pray for us as we live life together. Living life together will almost always frustrate someone. Let’s ask God to give us the grace that we might develop Christlike character in one another.

  • Please pray for the spirit of encouragement to permeate all that we do together.

  • Please ask God for his help for Western seminary. Pastor Scott will be leading their next board meeting on Friday the 13th.

  • Please pray for successful start next week to a new ministry with CB Northwest.

  • Please pray for those who are sick and suffering among us.

September Day of Prayer
Day of Fasting + Prayer.jpg

Let’s make our September Day of Prayer a day of thanksgiving. I know that thanksgiving often accompanies feasting more than fasting, and we certainly have needs we can and should pray for with fasting. 

I have been overwhelmed recently with the generosity of grace that the Lord has given New Life Church. Would you join me and spending extra time returning thanks?

I will offer some items below to get you started, but it would be time well spent to simply review some of the things you love about our church and express your gratitude to the Lord for them.

Our executive team met last night, and we were struck with the significance of the opportunities God is bringing our way and we are thankful for them.

We are overwhelmed with the generosity of people at New Life Church. Over and over, month after month, God has provided for us through the faithful stewardship of so many of you. Because of that, we can consider some of these opportunities.

I am grateful for everything from the leadership on the executive team to the recent improvements in our facilities to the generous musicians that serve us every week.

I’m thankful for the spirit of unity that is evident every Sunday.

I’m thankful for husbands and wives who love each other and parents who shepherd their children to follow Jesus.

I’m thankful for the skillfulness, efficiency and heart for ministry that Kim has in our church office.

I’m thankful we get to have an outdoor service together on Sunday.

I’m thankful for the pastoral team I get to work with.

I’m grateful for decades of faithfulness to the gospel that our church has enjoyed.

I’m thankful for our relationships with CB Northwest, and Western Seminary.

I’m overwhelmed when I consider the impact our church has had around the world through the missionaries that we have sent. I’m grateful that we can engage as missionaries right here at home.

I’m thankful for coffee cart ministry that has served students at West Linn high school for over 20 years. I’m thankful for Regeneration's outreach to Clackamas Community College.

I’m so, so grateful for God’s leading with our recovery houses. I’m thankful David Goetchius is leading in coordinating them. (Please pray for him).

I’m thankful for the kindness, the generosity, and the longsuffering of our seniors. I can’t believe that they have been so patient with me for so long as their pastor.

I can’t begin to express my gratitude for so many men and women who are doing their very best to serve Jesus in and through New Life Church. What a beautiful thing to witness!

I’m thankful for my life group. I’m thankful for the life group leadership of so many that enables everyone in New Life Church to have a place of community and belonging.

I’m grateful that we can serve as a team. I love that you get a variety of people who bring sermons on Sunday mornings and multiple teams of musicians to lead us in worship.

I’m thankful we can be a multi-site church so that we can be reminded that God’s kingdom is bigger than what we experience day-to-day. It gives us the cause to be unselfish and humble as we seek to glorify Jesus and extends God’s rule throughout our world.

I’m grateful that when people come to church on Sunday morning they invariably tell us how friendly people are and how much people work to make them feel at home.

I could go on... but, would you please join me in giving thanks to the Father for what he is doing and has done in and through New Life Church?

The text from which I’m preaching on Sunday is a prayer. It reaches its climax when it invites us to give thanks to the Father with joy (Colossians 1:9-12). Would you share my joy on this day of prayer and express your gratitude to the Father?

Thank you.

Pastor Scott
