                                                        Baptist Church
The church that is “helping people to realize God’s creative intent for their lives as
designed by God’s Word in the areas of: Worship, Discipleship, Evangelism, Ministry
and Fellowship.”
    Jesus said to them, " My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work."
Do not say, 'There are still four months and then comes the harvest?' Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the
fields, for they are already white for the harvest!’ John 4:34-35
    Are we in a field that is ripe for harvest and are not even aware of it? Are we delaying the gathering by thinking, harvest
time is not come. We still have four months. Look around saints, here in the Grier Heights community, there is a great harvest.
God has placed us here as laborers to gather His crop. There are lost souls in this community who need to be gathered and
led to Christ for salvation.
   Each one of us who know Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord is a harvester. Someone harvested us one day. It is our
responsibility to join now in helping others who are lost.
   Our pastor has been placed here to lead and encourage us to go out into the Grier Heights Community to minister and be a
witness to the unsaved. He is not here by chance or even his own undertaking. God has assigned him here for a season. God
chose him out of all the' Called' to be in Grier Heights at Antioch Baptist Church to labor in this field, for the harvest is plentiful.
He is our overseer. We are the laborers under his leadership. Let’s continue to commit to labor until there is a change in the
hearts of those who live in this community.
   Let us pray for our pastor, Donnie R. Garris and his family, daily this month that he (they) be renewed, refreshed and
revitalized in spirit ,mind, and body. We pray for his commitment to serve God and to minister to His people as God leads him.
   Let us pray that as our pastor is being ministered to during this sabbatical , the Holy Spirit will renew in us the mind of Christ
to continue to serve Him, to be in unity and to devote ourselves to service, always striving to do God's will.
   As intercessors we ask you to: Pray daily for Pastor Garris and his wife, Minister Regina Garris and their son, Jonathan.
Pray for Antioch Baptist Church that we will commit to the call as Laborers for Christ in this community.
Prayerfully submitted, The Prayer Intercessors of Antioch
