While churches are joining in the Texas Hope 2010 effort, Lone Oak Baptist near Harleton is taking ownership of it, even naming its effort Lone Oak 2010. The church held a commitment day service on Jan. 11 and is looking at a number of initiatives that could have a significant impact on its community.
I especially like the congregation’s initiative to make each member a “three-mile missionary,” where members will each be responsible for specific houses in a three-mile stretch around the church. Church members will pray speicifically for assigned homes, visit with families there, look for ministry opportunities and hope to share the gospel there.
I pray this is a time of growth and energy for Lone Oak Baptist Church.
