Good Tidings

God is moving in our work in Baltimore so I wanted to give you some insight.

At our inner city location we've partnered with an after school program which will triple their capacity for reaching kids. The after school center is run by a Christian man who gave up his career in software development to purchase 3 row homes and start this after school program. They use biblical texts to reinforce reading comprehension, they use worship songs during their art time and they give the kids a free hot meal every day. Through this partnership we will provide them a facility M-F to expand their outreach opportunities and we as a church will be able to get to know more of our community as we provide an invaluable resource to the people of the community... an education. Please pray for us as we prepare the facility to code so that the licensing process will go smoothly.

Out here in Towson/Timonium God continues to bless our efforts to provide college students with a place to grow in their faith or discover faith for the first time. We had a total of 18 at our home last night for 'Cook Out and Dig In'. Each week we've been opening our home for college students from the area to come and read together the truths of scripture. We're walking through the book of Acts verse by verse. Last night we walked through chapter 3 and the students are loving it! Great discussion and application. The theme that keeps coming up in these early chapters is "witness" and the students who are coming are taking note. Each week we have new folks showing up. I don't think these students realize what move of God could hit here if they set themselves apart to build God's Kingdom. I can't wait for them to see it happen here!

God has given us favor with our neighbors as well as we've been able to have discussions with folks right here in our community. Thus far people have been fairly receptive. As the summer progresses we'll continue to love on them and invite them into what God is doing here through Captivate. Be praying for that.

I want to thank all of our friends and partners around the country. God has blessed us with so many who are encouraging and supportive. Thank you. Please continue to pray for wisdom as we are about to hit a season of making fast-paced decisions. We have to purchase equipment, do a ton of outreach events and get amped up for opening day just over 3 months from now. Thanks for your prayers!
