God’s Front Porch
1 John 4:19
This Sunday Pastor Mark will speak about radical hospitality and what it means to bless others. In the lobby there will be a mini hospitality fair set up to help us apply this sermon to our everyday lives.
Below are the suggested readings for each day this week. You have the opportunity to mediate over the scripture and questions. Check back Monday to see ways you can share how you were a blessing to others.

Thursday, September 12 – Matthew 22: 8-9 Write down the names of three people who do not have a church home. Pray for them daily. Invite them to come to a ministry of the church with you.
