Spotlight on Missions: Goodwyn Middle School

Pursue the well-being of the city I have deported you to. Pray to the Lord on its behalf, for when it thrives, you will thrive.”

Jeremiah 29:7

The context of this verse is suffering and exile. We might expect God to call them to patiently endure, but that’s not what he does. He tells them to immerse themselves in their cities and work toward their prosperity.

We too are living in a city where God has placed us and our calling is the same: pursue its well-being. We are here for a reason and Eastmont is here for a reason.

We should pray for our city, seek peace in our city, and look to be a blessing for our city. Our focus should not be just what’s best for me and my family, but what’s best for our community.

You may have heard that God has recently opened the door for Eastmont to partner with Goodwyn Middle School. Principal Douglas Taylor and his staff have been welcoming and receptive to Eastmont’s partnership with them.

They have needs ranging from building and maintenance to student mentoring. We will present opportunities to partner with them in the coming weeks, and months, and perhaps years. We are inviting you to join us as we together seek the welfare of our city.

Begin praying that our service in tangible ways would lead to eternal transformations. Let’s plant and water some seeds, and watch God provide the growth.
