Be The Church

Church doesn't stop because we can't physically meet together. What can you do as a part of Mobberly during this time?

While we can't meet together, we want to continue to "be the church" – studying, praying and ministering the best we can within the limitations we have. Below are several ways you can stay involved. Check back often as information will be updated regularly. (Last Update: March 28 at 2:00 p.m.)

If you need us, please let us know

Call the church at 903.663.3100 or email [email protected]. These are extraordinary times, and we want help you in any way we can. If you want help others or serve in any of these areas, email [email protected]

Pray

Pray

Ephesians 6:18 says, “Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.”

Visit mobberly.org/pray to submit prayer concerns and pray for what others have submitted.

Some specific things you can pray about;

  • Praise God for His sovereignty. He is and always will be in control of all things. Pray that we will trust Him to help us navigate this season of uncertainty.
  • Pray for wisdom for governmental leaders, the CDC, researchers, other medical personnel, leaders in churches and other strategic places.
  • Pray for the protection of doctors, nurses, crisis response teams, emergency first responders, researchers and other medical professionals who risk their lives to protect ours.
  • Pray for comfort and healing for those stricken with this virus. Pray they will receive the quality health care they need to regain health and strength. Pray for their healing and for a treatment to cure and eradicate this virus.
  • Pray for peace, calmness, freedom from fear, anxiety and panic among individuals and communities.

You can also download the latest Watchman Update and pray over those items. Prayerfully, consider going the Watchman Prayer Ministry and signing up for a one hour time slot each week.

Serve

Check back for more ways to serve each other.

How Can You Serve Others?

Reach out to others.

  • Use the technology available to call, text or video chat with your Connect Groups, or people you are concerned about. Send an email to the person you’ve been praying for. We may have to be physically distant, we can be present in the lives of those around us.

Send a note to our Billy Moore campus attenders

  • Our Billy Moore campus is unable to meet. If you would like to reach out to someone who attends our campus at the Billy Moore Correctional Unit, they would love to get a note from you.  Email [email protected] and we will send instructions and contact information.

Share your 15-second testimony

  • Even online, we can share our faith. When you’re texting, calling or posting, remember to look for opportunities t share you faith. One way is to share your 15-second testimony. To find out how to prepare and practice that short story of your life before Christ, how you came to Christ and life after, watch this short video from Jan Lajoie, Minister of Engage.

 

Medical/First Responders

  • Have a pizza delivered to a local fire or police station.

Church Planters and Missionaries

  • Notes of encouragement or artwork done by you or your family for our church planters. Contact [email protected].

Food Distribution

  • Pick up and deliver food for the hungry in our community.
