RightNow Media hosted their conference “In Light of Eternity” in Orlando a few weeks ago. Session topics included: “Worshipping in Light of Eternity,” “Discipling in Light of Eternity” and “Leading in Light of Eternity” with J.D. Greear, Chip Ingram, David Uth and many others as speakers. All sessions are now available to watch on RightNow Media.
Kids need to know Jesus – they need to know for themselves if he is real. They have real questions that deserve real answers. They also need to know how to defend their faith and how to share the good news. Answers in Genesis is an “apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.” And guess what? They have a Vacation Bible School designed to teach kids about Jesus’ existence from eternity past to eternity future.
I encourage you to watch this six-minute video introduction to Time Lab by Answers in Genesis.

We will be observing Prayer Emphasis Month again in May this year. This week, we will be shipping the 2018 Prayer Emphasis material to all of our churches. The theme this year is “Restore Us, O God! – A Call to Repentance for Revival.” The main Scripture passage will be Psalm 80.
The mailing to your church will include samples of a few tools designed to help you and your church pray more effectively during this season of united prayer. What you will receive is a sample pack. Therefore, if you’d like any of these tools for your church, just let us know and we’ll be happy to print and ship them to you at no charge. You can call us at 800-676-0694 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know how many of each item you would like. Please order by April 23 if you’d need the materials by May 1.
