“You are the light of the world.  A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”


  • WHAT IF WE DECIDED TO WORK TOGETHER TO DISPLAY CHRIST’S LOVE AND JOY TO LAPEER COUNTY?


  • WHAT IF PEOPLE WHO ARE LOST, HURTING AND HOPELESS FIND HOPE AND LASTING RELATIONSHIPS?


  • WHAT IF PEOPLE MAKE A COMMITMENT TO CHRIST AND WANT TO BE BAPTIZED RIGHT IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE?


  • WHAT IF PEOPLE WHO ARE SEARCHING PLUG IN TO CHURCHES, YOUTH GROUPS, AND HELPFUL MINISTRIES?


  • WHAT IF YOU SHARE YOUR GIFTS, TALENTS AND TESTIMONIES TO HELP MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE?


We can do this together.  We can display the love of Christ!

 

“ And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works.”

 Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”  Proverbs 16:24 ESV


Words are little packets containing creative power.  God spoke the worlds into being using words.  

Our words can heal...and can destroy!  Come hear from these and other authors who will share messages of hope through their words from their hearts.

Real People

Real Stories

Their Words


GLORY STORIES

Your friends and neighbors, in their own words sharing profound experiences with God!  Why?

Luke 8:39 ESV

“Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.

Revelation 12:11 ESV

And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…

Psalm 115:1 ESV
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,
for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!

Don’t you just love to hear a great story?  One that has a happy ending?  How much more when they are true stories about God working in the lives of people! 

The vision behind this book is to be a collection of local ‘Glory Stories.’  In their own words, people from all across our area share those profound, often unexpected times when they have had an encounter with God!  Sometimes it as simple as a gentle, still small voice expressing His deep love, affirmation and confirmation.  Other times it is about His great power working in us to bring salvation, healing, provision, protection, deliverance and forgiveness! 

What’s your ‘Glory Story?’  We all have them if we will just ponder that for a moment.  Don’t you love the idea of being part of bringing the goodness, kindness and gentleness of God to people that are un-churched and unsaved?    Over 90% of the people in our area have no church affiliation or participation!  They are the ones this book is written for! 

To submit your ‘Glory Story’ in 600 words or less, go to this web address:  http://thec.website/ezra and follow the instructions there.  Once submitted, your testimony will be read, edited if necessary, and you will be contacted to give your approval and permission for the final draft to be used along with a photo for the back cover.  Let’s spread His Glory in ‘Glory Stories!’

The completed books will be given away free beginning this September at the

‘Ezra Project – Word Alive’ event in Lapeer

at the Historic Courthouse as part of the

evangelism outreach effort then. 

In addition to needing your testimonies, we also need sponsors to help us with the printing costs. Will you prayerfully consider how He would have you help?   http://thec.website/Donations
