Church to conduct Walk A Block for Jesus for 5th year

See also

The Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Burns Flat, Oklahoma invites all those who believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior to come walk with them on Saturday morning, 10 May 2014.

This is the 5th Walk A Block for Jesus and it comes with a few extra components. Walkers will divide themselves into three main groups. There will be a group that will go into homes and pray. There will be another group that will walk the east side of town—otherwise known as the base—and pray on each block and for each of the 3 schools. Finally, there will be a group that just has to knock on doors and tell people how much God loves them.

There is something for everyone. You can stay completely within your comfort zone or just go for it and proclaim the good news with as many people as possible in a single morning.

If anyone in Burns Flat wants a small group of people who follow Jesus to come into their home and pray for them, they can call Tom at 562-4706 or leave a message if it goes to voicemail. All that the caller needs to do is leave their name and street address. It is really hard to find a post office box when you are walking the town, so the street address to include A or B for duplexes is very important.

Prayer groups will not go into homes without an invitation, so that means that you can’t sign up your neighbor, but you can give them the 562-4706 phone number and tell them that a simple phone call will bring people to pray for them on May 10th.

Everything begins at 9:00 a.m. at the Cumberland Presbyterian Church with briefings and blessings and organizing groups. Most groups will be walking by 9:30. All walkers need to be back at the church building by noon for pizza, pop, and testimonies. These encounters do change lives and that part of the story needs to be shared among participants.

There are a few support requirements if anyone wants to participate but can’t walk. See Tom Spence when you arrive Saturday morning.

In previous years, this event has included some very senior seniors and even children still in diapers and strollers. There is a place for everyone and everyone is invited.
