Date: Jan 31, 2020
Location: Grace Community Church, Auburn
Time: 7-9 pm
Who: The Churches of the Puget Sound
What: Join Churches from Bellingham to Olympia for an evening of prayer, music, and worship as together we pray for a movement of the gospel across the Puget Sound. In collaboration with local leaders and artists, the evening will provide an opportunity for Christians from all traditions to gather together to pray for:
- the cities of the Puget Sound region
- for gospel-presence in our institutions (government, education, civic, etc.)
- that the Puget Sound Church would fulfill the Biblical vision of being a light to our communities
- that every man, woman, and child have a daily encounter Jesus where they live, work, learn, and play
- a movement of the Spirit to unify our local churches
- Spirit-empowered disciples of Jesus who life courageously as disciple-makers
The Saturate the Sound prayer evening will encourage a Kingdom perspective and a call to live a counter-cultural life; one that leads to the flourishing of individuals and the flourishing of our communities. The Puget Sound has experienced rapid population growth in the last five years. Recent data suggests that in several Seattle-area suburbs, population has risen by twenty-five to thirty-five percent since 2014. The shadow side of this rapid growth is an unexpected rise in the number of people reporting that they feel isolated and lonely. Ironically, these unprecedented rates of loneliness and lack of long-term relationships are being experienced even as people are living and working amongst millions of people every day. People are in desperate need of the Good News of Jesus and to be a part of a loving community; it is our hope that this evening of payer will empower the Church to worship and submit to Jesus in all of life, to love one another as family, serve others, and share the good news of Jesus Christ as His sent people.
Saturate the Sound is a Washington state nonprofit seeking to support the local Church in organizing and developing gospel saturation strategies and utilizing shared resources for effective gospel ministry with the goal of multiplying communities on mission, establishing new churches, and saturating the region with gospel-centered disciples of Jesus on mission together in the everyday. We believe this strategy will be accomplished by focusing on three key result areas; every church, every person, and every place.
