We Proudly Support Amnion’s Walk for Life

  |   by:   |   filed under: Upcoming Events   |   2 Comments

Join Us In Walking June 7th to Celebrate Life

Supporting those who do not have a voice is a priority at Sovereign Grace Church, and
the Bible is not short of passages that exhort the church to stand up for injustice.
Proverbs 31:8-9, right before the words from King Lemuel’s mother tell him of what to
look for in a wife, says this:

Open your mouth for the mute,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
defend the rights of the poor and needy.

An organization that stands up for the “mute” is Amnion, located in Burnsville,
Minnesota. “Since 1991, Amnion Crisis Pregnancy Center has provided Christ-centered,
compassionate and free services to women and men who are facing an unplanned
pregnancy in their lives.” This Gospel centered clinic lovingly receives women and
provides free pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and pregnancy & abortion education,
post-abortion grief support, and much more. Amnion is helping women with unplanned
pregnancy and advocating for children who have not yet been heard.

Sovereign Grace Church recognizes the importance of standing with Amnion. In doing
so we encourage members at SGC come together for the Celebrate Life Walk. The
Celebrate Life Walk is a 2-mile walk and an opportunity to raise money for Amnion.
Whether you create a team of people to walk with or join an existing team this is a great
opportunity to support the unborn by coming together as a church community.

Watch a quick video with highlights from last year’s Walk for Life

Not only is God interested in advocating for those who do not have a voice, but
specifically for the unborn babies who have not yet heard. Perhaps one of my favorite
chapters in the Bible about God’s plan for the unborn is Psalm 139. In vv. 13-14 the
Psalmist acknowledges the role God has with the unborn.

For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

So why does SGC support Amnion? Because Amnion loves the Gospel, loves the
mother who is expecting unexpectedly, and loves the unborn.

Bolivia Ministry Trip Prayer Requests

  |   by:   |   filed under: General   |   No Comments

CDE Bolivia

This morning 24 individuals from three of our Midwest Sovereign Grace Churches, (Cross of Grace, Providence Community, and SGC Bloomington,) are departing to Bolivia to serve at the orphanage Casa De Esperanza (CDE). Located in Caranvai, Bolivia the team will travel 11 hours by air and 6 hours by bus to serve the 70 plus children who call CDE their home. Lord willing, we will serve with roofing, plumbing, and maintenance projects and also extend the love of Christ to the children and staff through God’s grace at work in us.

Bolivia

Please pray for us over the next 11 days:

  • Pray for Christ like humility and unity to be the character of our team as we go not to be served, but to serve as Jesus served us (Mark 10:45).
  • Pray that our service would be a refreshing means of gospel grace to everyone we come in contact with.
  • Pray for evangelistic opportunities in our travels and time at the orphanage.
  • Pray for travel mercies and health and safety.
  • Pray for warm, dry weather in Bolivia so we can accomplish many of the outdoor projects.
  • Pray for families left behind who are without a mom or dad.

Internet connections are unreliable, but we will do our best to provide updates through this blog and the SGC Facebook page. You can also follow a blog from the Cross of Grace folks at www.sgcbolivia.wordpress.com

Sights from the 2014 SGC Midwest Regional Women’s Conference

  |   by:   |   filed under: Upcoming Events   |   2 Comments

Right now over 100 women from the midwest Sovereign Grace Churches are growing from Fear to Faith through the grace of God at work in the teaching of Lydia Brownback.

Enjoy some of the sights of the conference and thank God with us for his grace to the women of our family of churches. May the Lord continue to bless this conference and show the surpassing worth of Jesus in all things!

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
(1 Peter 1:6-9, ESV)
