A New Year Together!

As we begin a new year together, we want to emphasize evangelism. We began this emphasis with a sermon from 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8 on evangelism last Sunday, January 1. THIS Saturday, January 7, we will go to the neighborhood by the church building to pray for our neighbors and look for opportunities to share the gospel.
• Would you begin praying for unbelieving, unchurched people in your life?
• Would you ask God to give you the grace to share the gospel regularly in 2023?
• Would you ask God to grant us the fruit of conversion in our evangelism?
• And would you ask God to bring in many new members in 2023 through baptism?

Join us for our Prayer Services on the 2nd and 4th Sunday Evenings of Each Month
The early church was devoted to praying together. As they prayed, the Lord transformed them into a community that produced a compelling witness (Acts 2:42-47).

Would you make every effort to join us as we gather to pray twice a month for God’s name to be exalted, his kingdom to be expanded, and his will to be embraced. We will also pray for all we need – as a church and as individuals, along with praying for one another. Our prayer gatherings on the 2nd and 4th Sundays are our family time – the time when we hear from one another and pray together. Join us!

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions
Our offering goal this year is $35,000. We’re close to our goal, but we have a bit to go to reach it. You may still give to support the spread of the gospel to the nations through the LCMO. Will you join us in reaching our offering goal?

To give, simply notate “Lottie Moon” somewhere on your check or envelope. Then place your gift in one of the offering boxes in the auditorium. You may also give to the LMCO online at highpointeaustin.org/give or through the HPBC App.
