15. Wanted: hosts & leaders!

 Might you possibly be a host for a small group? Consider this: Do you enjoy your home and would like to share it one evening a week with a small group of church friends? Are you concerned thinking that you have to cook/bake something special, … don't be. We are simply looking for open doors, a place where you and a small group of friends can meet and talk, laugh, pray together and at times offer a comforting shoulder to cry on. Is God encouraging you to be a host, speak with Pastor Alex or one of the elders. Hosting a small group just may turn out to be your special blessing for 2012. The Host family does not necessary lead, but simply provides the place and offers hospitality for those coming. Prayerfully consider and if you are prompted by the Spirit – sign on the list of Host Families on the foyer Board.  To be a "leader" can be a frightening thought. It doesn't need to be, small group ministries are looking for individuals who are passionate about developing friendships for themselves and encouraging the development of relationships between others. You may be the very person that God is looking for to lead a small group. You don't have to preach, you don't have to be an expert in bible history, we are looking for individuals who can connect with people, are compassionate, respectful and can direct an evening of casual conversation, focussed discussion and meaningful group prayer. If you are even remotely interested, speak with Pastor Alex or one of the elders to explore this opportunity, you may be pleasantly surprised at what God can do with your willing heart.

Dear church family, we have completed a whole year of praying for different countries of the world, and now I have opportunity to use this blog again to bring prayer request for many urgent matters to your attention, and to communicate important undertakings of our church and community. Before the “prayer requests” I wish you good family time, enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend with your family and bless someone by inviting them over for time of fellowship and sharing. And remember – the celebration is more than about food, it’s about relationships. We are in Minneapolis, MN conducting evangelistic efforts, and folks here are also on holidays – Columbus Day. First major prayer request comes from the leadership of the North American Division of our church. The Annual Council of our world-wide church will be starting next weekend, October 12. The administration of the General Conference will announce what they plan to do because of the various unions decisions to ordain without regard to gender. North American church president Dan Jackson and the team need our prayers. Pray for representatives from all countries of the world to be guided by the Holy Spirit. Another matter that needs all our prayers is developing in Maryland. In November voters in the state of Maryland will be asked to vote on a measure that would permit marriage between two partners of the same sex. There are more than 40,000 members of the Seventh-day Adventist in that state. This Sabbath (October 5 and 6) two Adventist churches in the Washington DC area will be hosting presentations and discussions on the topic of homosexuality. As you will read this, the first meeting already happened, last evening, Friday, at the Capital Memorial Seventh-day Adventist church where a screening of the documentary “Seventh-gay Adventist” took place with a discussion panel including two Adventist theologians Nicholas Miller and Roy Gane, co-editors of the new book “Homosexuality, Marriage, and the Church” published by the Adventist University Press, Bill Knott, editor of the Adventist Review, Jason Hines, an Associate Editor for ReligiousLiberty.TV and the producers of the film, Daneen Akers and her husband Stephen Eyer. This is a continuation of a dialogue that had began earlier this year. 18 screenings were already held in major Adventist communities. What do we do with the faith on the margins? With people who are different and yet do not want to give up their religious heritage? In plain, how do we treat people of LGBT community? Are we ready to put a spotlight of grace to people who have been excluded from fellowship because of their choices? Are we ready as a church community in London to address this? Pray for our leaders navigating in a fast changing world to stay faithful to the teachings of Christ, and the truth once delivered to all saints of God. Pray that we would see the Kingdom of God growing beyond the walls of our church. Pray for you to be a spotlight of grace shining in the darkness of the world around you.

your servant, pastor Alex Golovenko
