SUNDAY, August 13

Read Nehemiah 1


Preparation for Sunday


Today, we have the privilege of welcoming to our services Isaac and Bibis Becerra all the way from Mexico City.  Pastor Terry will bring a message from the story of Nehemiah that talks about the burden God laid on Nehemiah’s heart for the people of Jerusalem.  As part of the message, Isaac will be sharing his heart for the people of Mexico City. 


  • Who have been the people God has laid on your heart? In what ways do your prayers and actions reflect God’s invitation to see these people draw closer to God?
  • After listening to this morning’s message, how do you believe God is asking you to respond?
  • Pray that our services will provide a deeper sense of the ministry in Mexico City that we are partnering with through our youth mission trips.
  • Ask God to work in our congregation and in your heart as we gather to worship Him today.


  • Pray for all who will be involved in our services today.
  • Pray that God would effectively be at work in our church and in all His churches throughout our city today.
  • Pray for the ministry of the International Student Ministries.
  • Pray for our Children’s Ministry Director, Jerilyn Bayer.
