Week of Prayer for International Ministries in Mobile March 13-19, 2022

Week of Prayer FB Banner
In Romans 12:12 we are admonished to “pray without ceasing (HCSB).” it states it this way, “Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer.” Because of the importance of prayer for our International Ministries, we have set aside a week to focus on and to emphasize prayer for the needs and opportunities among internationals in the greater Mobile area as well as thousands of seafarers frequenting the Port of Mobile, the 12th largest in the USA.

Please set aside the week of March 13-19 and join us in praying daily for items listed below.

Thank you for faithfully praying with us. Our desire is that many will utilize the prayer cards for focused prayer throughout the year.

Delicious cakes will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, so come prepared to buy your favorite cake! The cake that sells for the highest amount will be declared “Mobile’s Baptist Baking Champion 2022.”

They are only $10 and ALL of the proceeds will support collegiate missions through our State BCM Missions Program. Check out our program here at www.onemissionstudents.org. Contact us at themetromobilebcm@gmail.com or 251-344-5904 to reserve tickets.

Will you prepare some BBQ for this event? You can grill, smoke, or BBQ any meat of your choice. Smoke a Boston Butt, grill some burgers or chicken or BBQ some ribs. All we ask is that you prepare enough for 50 small (bite-size) tasting servings. We also need you to invite as many of your church members to come and vote for your BBQ to win! Will you help us support collegiate missions? If you would, please contact Campus Minister Jerrod Brown to reserve a spot (jbrown@alsbom.org).

Will you prepare one of your famous cakes for this event? We know that every church has those great bakers who make their special cakes that everyone loves. Would you share those delicious cakes with us to support collegiate missions? All we ask is that you prepare your famous cake, package it on a disposable plate or pan, and invite as many of your church members to come and bid on your cake! Will you help us support collegiate missions? If you would, please contact Campus Minister Jerrod Brown to reserve a spot (jbrown@alsbom.org).
