Total Member Involvement
Many see the holidays as a time to get, but what if this could be an opportunity to learn to give in a new way, to help your family and children really be part of Total Member Involvement? The "Giving Calendar" created by the wives of Adventist Pastors, is designed to help families with children learn how to be more giving. This advent-style calendar counts down the days to Christmas by spending a little time each day focusing on one of twelve areas of service. Each day there is a special project or a special challenge of service. However, these daily calendar cards and projects are actually not Christmas specific, so while they are perfect for those that take part in the holiday season, they actually can be used by families during any month of the year. So however, you decide to use this calendar, we know your whole family will be very blessed by these inspiring devotionals and practical giving ideas. (Digital printable calendar is also available!)

Praising God for how He showed up in the 10 Days of Prayer. God called young and old to a revival by the Spirit! We met together to pray in small groups led by elders, and I facilitated from the front to keep young and old engaged. We moved everyone into the fellowship hall for our Sabbath worship service so that the rest of the church could experience 10 Days of Prayer with it’s fellowship, prayer, singing, and testimonies in small groups.
Our 10 Days of Prayer and the all-night prayer session was a blessing. Usually the ending of the all-night begins to slow down. But this time the last couple of hours (led by young people who shared their testimonies) were really powerful!
This was our first time participating in the Ten Days of Prayer. During the ten days, we had a 24-hour prayer chain. Basically, one person prays for an hour and at the end of the hour calls the next prayer warrior to pray. I am in awe of what God did. Chains of anger, unforgiveness, and many more were broken. We are enjoying unity in our church. The twenty-four prayer team members have asked me to keep the team. To God be the glory!
Thank you so much for 10 Days of Prayer. We joined this program in 2013. We wanted to let you know the amazing things that have happened to our church since then. It is revived and growing little by little. Member interest in soul winning activity is growing.
