By Jon Roberts – Littleton, Colorado … On the very evening, January 6, when the political divisions in America grew into an unsuccessful coup at the United States Capital, some 30 members, including a ten-year-old and several teenagers came together for the first Wednesday night prayer meeting at the Littleton church.
Lead pastor Andy Nash, in opening remarks, addressed the events of the day, “We didn’t plan for our first prayer meeting to be on a day that was so painful for our country, but Jesus is our King and we want to pray for soft hearts and unity for our country and church.”
One church member shared how thankful they were to have a Wednesday night gathering, stating, “It is a blessing for our family to come and worship.” Church members welcomed the Wednesday gathering and expressed an interest in having such meetings continue into the future.
The meeting was planned to coincide with a new sermon series on Revelation stemming from a desire by Andy and Cindy Nash to spend time together with members and groups. Andy added, “It is harder [to gather together] in homes right now, but this is a beautiful house of God and it allows us a chance to space out.”
Following a devotional thought by Cindy Nash, individuals were given the chance to share reflections and prayer requests.
Following the prayer time, Andy Nash shifted the focus of the meeting in preparation for the new Revelation sermon series, which began the following Sabbath.
The congregation enjoyed a ten-minute clip from a Bible series detailing the disciples’ work of spreading the gospel to Asia. The clip ended on the small island of Patmos.
The Revelation sermon series, along with the Wednesday night gatherings, will continue for the next ten weeks, in person and online. Nash invites anyone wishing to dig deeper into Revelation to join the gatherings online at the Littleton Church Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LittletonSDA
