Way to go Cary and FRG! We have heard some great stories about our community this week. The terrible long power outage gave many folks a chance to Reach in and Reach Out by sharing their power or generators. There were cords strewn across many streets sharing power, kids sleeping in basements, using neighbors showers, sharing meals and on and on the stories go. Hopefully you got a chance to "Pay It Forward" this week. Here are some great words from one of our pastors:
Living without power for those couple days was a tangible reminder of how horribly tragic it is when Christ-followers go through everyday life without the daily infusion of supernatural power that is available to us from God. Paul’s prayer for the local church in Ephesus is something I’m praying for our church these days. Check out this “power prayer” for yourself:
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know...His incomparably great POWER for us who believe. That POWER is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.” (Ephesians 1:18-21)
Is God’s power shut off in your life? You can have power today. Trust in Christ to give you life. Pray and ask God to give you the power you need to live the life He longs for you to lead. Rely on His power to fill and fuel you. Then live a life of faith every single day of your life—plugged-in to the “incomparably great power” of your God.
The The Car Wash Team has held numerous events where unsuspecting supporters are blessed by having their car washed with the added bonus of being given $1 instead of offering a donation for the car wash
Check the events calendar for the next Car Wash. They are normally held in May and July. The locations and times vary. Read from one of our supporters.
Dear Cary Grove Neighborhood Life,
I am so grateful for the $24 Thornton's gift card you gave to me at the $1 "Pay It Forward" car wash in Cary. Wtih the $25 saved in gas, I was able to pay for a haircut and buy some over the counter medicine I needed.
You jump started by Christain religion again and I have been trying to pay it forward to others as I am able and as much as I can. I used to be able to volunteer in the 1990's for the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, a wonderful organization like yours. I will use the gas to drive to Woodstock to attend their pancake breakfast outdoors tomorrow.
