The Lopez family recently began an informal Bible study in their home every Tuesday and every other Thursday evening and it has been very fruitful. Many church members attend, and it is a great opportunity for them to invite friends and neighbors. Pastor Bradney shares that these studies serve as a sort of bridge into the covenant community, so that when the unchurched come to worship they already know some people and terminology and feel more comfortable there. A young woman will be coming to the Lopez home for dinner on August 12. Bradney and she connected through a shared interest in surfing. They don’t yet know her spiritual state and are hoping to build a friendship with her. Please be in prayer for these various ministry opportunities taking place in their home. Finally, Bradney requests prayer as they seek to begin a Titus 2 Women’s Ministry in the church, as well prayer for a safe delivery for his wife, due with their sixth child on October 30.
