Living “Sent”

Living “Sent”

Missional is a way of living and being. Missional is the "activity of a missionary." Are you part of a local movement designed to explore that thought?

What would it look like if we truly to adopt the mindset of “living sent” in our neighborhood?

How would we act?

What would we do?

What would our priorities look like?
In Church and at home?

Journey with us in the Lighthouse Project as we hope to learn to express this way of living ...

Early Lighthouse Reports

Early Lighthouse Reports

a One lighthouse used their list to invite neighbors to a barbeque at their place – just to get acquainted!
a One reports that they are planning a “Soup Night” where neighbors can drop in for a mug of fresh made soup.
a Another reports that they use their list when they walk for exercise, and then pray by name as they pass neighbors homes. This helps them learn names and connect them to the homes they live in.
a One has highlighted their closest neighbors on the list and added spouse and children’s names that they know and started praying by name for them too.

Tips on using your neighborhood prayer list:

a Place your list in a place that will allow you to see it and use it often.
a Choose who you want to pray for ~ and pray at least once every week.
a Make corrections, fill in any gaps, add spouse, children, pets... ages, etc. It can get messy – and that’s great!
a Let the guide help you learn names. Use their names whenever you see neighbors.

Passing a Leadership Baton at MCN

MCN Update:

Yesterday, August 16th, as Pastor Jay Lewis readied for his move to Nashville today, he passed the MCN Secretary/Treasurer baton to Pastor Roger Scantlin . Roger, Pastor of New Life Assembly of God in Newton has been active in the work of the MCN for two years and has faithfully served on the leadership roundtable of MCN for over a year where his vision and willingness to work hard to make a real difference has been a tremendous asset. This past month New Life Assembly and Grace Community made local history when they shared one very successful VBS together.

It is a great pleasure to welcome Roger into his new role in the leadership of the MCN. It is also a great sadness to say goodbye to one of the MCN's great founding voices as Jay Lewis retires from vocational ministry. Jay's tireless support and "whatever it takes" attitude have been a large part of the MCN's success and growth these past two years.

To God be the Glory!
