In this Monday’s devotion in our Seek God for the City devotional guide, we are called to seek God on behalf of ministries. Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 3:1, “Finally, brothers (and sisters), pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified.”
As you know, there are many ministries taking place at UBC. This week, Alba, Barbara Moore, Robby Gough, and Anne Keith are leading Jubilate on their spring break tour. Alba recently posted an article on our website about Pam spending her snow day cooking for a pre-tour Friday night dinner, students taking tests on the bus via wi-fi while traveling to Pittsburgh on Saturday, and Alba scrambling to teach alto parts to some sopranos because of last- minute drop outs. In all this, Alba finds joy in investing “in the lives of some of the brightest and best college students ever.” You can read Alba’s full article on our website: http://wp.me/p3JX6D-162.
Similarly, last weekend, Erin Brown led a lock-in for twenty-one youth. They cooked breakfast for the church, and held their own worship/prayer time during the 11 o’clock hour. Erin’s report, pictures, and thank-you note can be found on our website: http://wp.me/p3JX6D-178.
Starting this Wednesday, we will set up a volunteer sign-up board for Mission Madness (April 17-19). Please consider helping this exciting ministry as we host over 250 youth from all over Virginia to engage in mission and service projects here in Charlottesville!
As UBC seeks God for the city, we the church staff greatly welcome your prayers, not only for us but also or especially for our church community engaged in ministry. May the word of the Lord spread and be glorified!
