Founders’ Day Prayer Walk
CCA celebrates Founders’ Day to celebrate God’s call to us and to remember God’s work in and amongst us in reaching the lost of Savannah. Normally we hold a large gathering – an oyster roast – to symbolize the way in which God called us together here in the Hostess City and to celebrate how He has provided for our needs.
This year, Covid limits our ability to gather as a people. Instead, we will celebrate God’s call by going in mission – by actually participating in what God has called CCA to do: to be “a church for the Thomas Square Neighborhood and beyond – interacting, engaging, and serving those in need.” (Quoted from the CCA Vision.)
Our Founder’s Day Outreach will be something like a simple prayer walk. Each worshipper will be given a door-hanger or two at the end of worship. It will say something like, “We are praying for you in 2021! May God bless you in this new year! Let us know if we can be praying for anything in particular,” and will have information for our worship services and for contacting the church. Each worshipper will take those prayer hangers with them and will find a home/person to pray for (either around the CCA building or in their own neighborhoods). They are not to knock or try to have a conversation – the goal is simply to pray and leave the hanger.
This serves two purposes:
- It celebrates our call as a church – not simply to existence, but to mission – by participating in that call.
- It challenges our people to recommit to our mission, by taking simple steps of faith in outreach and prayer.
