By God’s love and grace, He has blessed our church beyond measure. He continues to give us a presence in the Homeland Park Community as well as an impact on our region's state and world. When things are going well, the temptation is to stay in a comfort zone, unfortunately the Bible says nothing about doing that.
Did you know that Homeland Park Baptist Church originated at a church plant to reach the people of the down and out “Tin Town” community. Small tin shacks stood cramped close together where our field and family life center are now. A few people had a burden for those in need and did something about it.
While our church has a burden for our community today, we must be out “in” our community. Starting on May 28th @ 10:00 am I will begin this new ministry of prayer walking in our community. For one day a month I will be walking the streets of Homeland Park for the sole purpose of praying for those people and houses that I pass. I am prepared to do this alone, but prayerfully invite you to join me.
The greatest way to get a burden for our community is to be in the community and pray for them. If God gives us the opportunity to interact with people I will but the primary purpose is to pray. If you are older and cannot walk then drive. There will be prayer guides, directions and a celebration time at the end of the walk. Ask God if He would give you the burden to pray and walk with me. I can’t wait to see what He is going to do.
