SATURDAY FEB 24TH / SUNDAY, FEB 25th

WEEKEND REFLECTION

I will meditate on all Your work and muse on Your deeds. | Psalm 77:12

  • Take time to meditate on all God has been showing you this week through these prayer times. What has been the most challenging or encouraging?
  • Take time to show gratitude. Focus on one or two attributes of God (His grace, His holiness, His unchanging nature). Thank Him for who He is and what He’s done.
  • Ask God to prepare your heart for our time of worship together this weekend.
  • Pray through Psalm 23. Feel free to personalize it while you pray and see how this fits into the campaign.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Saturday/Sunday Prayer Points

Legacy Campaign

  • Review Hillside’s Mission Statement and Vision Statement below. Pray that people at Hillside will see how the Legacy Campaign and building this children’s building and paying our debt down accomplishes our Mission and Vision Statements:

Hillside Mission Statement – “To help people discover who Jesus really is and become just like Him.”

Hillside Vision Statement – “To be a church where every person has an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ that leads to Eternal Living Now, so that God’s will and ways are carried out in our everyday lives, our community, and the world.”

  • Pray for people to be involved in our 21 Days of Prayer and our 24 Hour Day of Prayer and Fasting to seek God for how He would want them to respond to the Legacy Campaign.
  • Pray as we provide every week to every group at Hillside lessons/discussion items related to the Legacy Campaign and Pete’s sermons. Pray for God’s Spirit to lead in the discussion around the campaign.
  • Pray that we can have 70% participation in the campaign. We currently have around 800 households that give to Hillside during a year so our goal is to have around 500 households make a promise to the Legacy Campaign.
  • Pray that we can have $5 million promised the weekend of March 3-4 to be given over the next 1,000 days (3 years).
  • Pray for First Fruits Sunday on March 25 that we will take our largest offering ever at Hillside so we can begin the building process in 2018.

Ministry Specific: Worship Ministry

  • We currently need more vocalists.
  • Pray for the team to grow spiritually.

Ministry Specific: Creative Arts

  • Pray for guidance of our team to be unified and oriented toward worshipping God as we serve in a technical capacity. We want to create a space that allows for people as a community to focus on God and grow deeper in His Word weekly.

Ministry Specific: Marketing

  • Pray for wisdom and discernment to keep our community informed in an honorable way. Pray we are able to celebrate and share the life change of individuals and families at Hillside in a manner by which God is glorified and others can be encouraged to seek Him further.
