The Big Three | This Week at More Life

pastor josh pennington | March 26, 2020

1. Spiritual Care must go viral!
We, as a church, must own this responsibility together. How do we do that?
Call people.
Yup. It's that simple.

Ask them two questions:
-How are you doing spiritually?
-How can I pray for you?

Listen to their answer and pray. If you arent comfortable praying with that person on the phone, then tell them you will pray after you finish the call, then pray. You can do this! You were born for such a time as this. It is time for the church to arise and awaken!!

2. Relational Connectivity can increase.
Online church is going to continue to be a reality for the foreseeable future. We will worship together as soon as it is humanly possible, and I am praying for you and your family. Click here to access our Prayer Guide

You can stream all of our services online:

Our church's online connectivity with people is on the rise and we haven't peaked yet. I am asking God to use this odd time to breathe MORE LIFE into hearts and lives. Will you let him use you? Here is what you can do; I want you to invite friends to come to church with you. We have created a tutorial for you so you can invite friends even if you aren't 'tech-savvy."
I want to begin providing something for your children and grandchildren online during this period that will help you grow spiritually as a family. Here is the challenge we NEED help. I am asking God to send us a champion. If you have a passion to help children grow in their faith, will you prayerfully consider serving our families? Click here to Say YES to Kids!

3. Financial Security is found in God alone
God is our source challenge. Services may be canceled, but budgets aren't canceled, God's power is NOT canceled. He is still your source and mine! I am asking you to help us continue the mission of More Life Church and beyond through your tithes and offerings.

I believe we are a healthy church, and this is a chance for us to prove it. The enemy wants us to back down and quit, but I don't have any quit in me. I believe God is at work to transform and revitalize this region with the gospel. If you agree with me give, today!

I am asking for you to stay the course on our "God is my source challenge" by continuing the Tithe Test. Click here to learn more about God Is My Source Challenge.
Right now is the perfect time to test Him in our finances. Angie and I have not and will not back off of our tithes and offerings to this church. We are asking you to do the same.

I am the LORD All-Powerful, and I challenge you to put me to the test.  Bring the entire ten percent into the storehouse, so there will be food in my house. Then I  will open the windows of heaven and flood you with blessing after blessing. | Malachi 3:10 
  1. Recognize God as your source by bringing 10% of your income into God’s house.
  2. Realize that where your treasure is, your heart is also.
  3. Record in a tithe test journal what you observe and experience as God proves himself faithful to you.
