Prayer Requests - Nov. 18'

DeepWater Church

Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them.  -Acts 2:2-3

Prayer Partners,
We have now had eight worship gatherings and we are praising God for the positive momentum!  It has been a great start!  As to be expected the first few weeks we had lots of friends and family visit.  We are now seeing a more consistent group of people each week and we are working hard to connect folks in d-groups and serving opportunities.  We sense that the Holy Spirit is at work at DeepWater and this past Sunday we talked about the birth of the church in Acts 2 - and we prayed for the Spirit to work powerfully in and through us.  Thank you for joining us in prayer, please see the below requests:

*For Jess & I (Paul) Tuesday, Nov. 13 (TODAY at 11am) as we share about DeepWater at the South Carolina Baptist Association Annual Meeting in front of a room full of people - pray that God would get the glory.

**Student Ministry Fall Retreat - Nov. 16-18 - 6-12th graders 
Our DeepWater students will participate in a retreat with two other church plants, The Church at SeWee Bay & King's Cross Church.  Pray for salvation for those who are without Christ, for strengthening for those who are Christians and for a boldness to share the Gospel.

1.  Pray for our leadership team that meets on Monday mornings.  Each member of the team oversees a key area of our young church, so pray for God's wisdom and leadership.

2.  Our D-Groups are up and going and we are seeing folks get connected and become more a part of the faith family.  We have a rotation of how the groups work each week, so here is how you can pray specifically.
Week of Nov. 11 - Women      Week of Nov. 25 - Families (kids too)         Week of Dec. 2 - Men        Week of Dec. 9 - Coed

3.  Ask God to give DeepWater a desire to LOVE THE ISLAND & BEYOND and to share the love and message of the Gospel.  We want to be a church that deeply loves those who do not yet know Christ - and we want to love those around us where we LIVE, LEARN, WORK & PLAY.  

4.  Pray that our DeepWater family would be passionate about spending time with Jesus through out the week.

5.  Lift up the opportunities we have with children and students.  We are a church that is committed to the Next Generation and so pray that the Lord would send us many children and youth to influence.  (Children's Ministry is on Sundays during the service and student ministry is on Wednesday evenings.)  Currently we have 35-40 children most Sundays and 6-8 students on Wednesdays.

6.  That the Isle of Palms and our neighborhoods around Mt. Pleasant would be different because of our influence as believers.  We want to see the island and east cooper area change because of God's Kingdom work through DeepWater Church.

7.  For the Lord to make us a generous church.  And for folks to be generous to DeepWater - we continue to raise financial support from the outside.

8.  For the two church plants we financially contribute to and support in Charleston: Uptown Church (downtown) & Live Oak Church (John's Island)

Thank you so much for praying.  Your prayers are an important part of God's work!
In Christ's Joy,
