Home Church Resource:
Prepare the Way
(Micah 6:8 Journey)
July 19 (Pray KC Prayer Video)
This weekend, we have an exciting opportunity to join together in homes around the city, continuing to seek the Lord’s ways and to lift our voices to heaven for the healing of the land. We believe the Lord is releasing justice in our city on behalf of our black brothers and sisters. As a Navah family, we have a deep love, respect and trust for the Pray KC team and all that they are working towards in prayer and unity in our city.
The resource this morning is a prayerful, worshipful, and practical way we as a church family can continue to hear the Lord and work with the Spirit as He brings healing to the oppressed in Kansas City.
There will be stories, worship, and opportunities for prayer response all throughout this video that we can engage in our home churches. The video is an hour and fifteen minutes long. You’ll notice the modified resource includes a time for care for one another, space for our children, and the suggestion to finish the day with communion as a response. We know this can seem quite long, but it is an interactive resource that we trust will minister powerfully to our body. We trust you and bless you, friends, to hear from and lead with the Spirit of God.
Care (20 min)
Hi/Lo or Good News Stories
Invite each person to share a brief Hi/Lo (gratitude and prayer need)
Consider having the next person who shares pray a short blessing over the previous person who shared
We are going to pause for 2 minutes to consider how we will give this week. For those that call Navah home, this is a time for you to give right now or review your giving to all God does in and through Navah. During this time, also listen and ask the Spirit if there is a need/person He wants you to bless. Let’s wait in silence for 2 minutes now. Give Online.
The Life Transformation School (LTS) will run from August 3-15 this year and will follow social distancing guidelines. This is foundational training for Navah membership and leadership. It is not a standard information course but an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to work in us, transforming us further into the image of Christ. Registration is open on the Navah website HERE.
Kids (time varies)
Consider how you integrate these kids resources from Navah Kids. Each home church will do this differently depending on the number and age of the children participating. Remember to include your kids as much as possible and have fun! See the resource HERE.
