Saturate Lakeland Launch

by | Aug 29, 2018 | Events

Sharing the Gospel with Every Home

Thank-you for your commitment and participation in Saturate Lakeland! We are in an unprecedented time of history in Lakeland, in Polk County, and most importantly in God’s story! We are each appointed for this season! (Acts 17:16-28) Get ready to prepare the soil of your Gospel Area of Responsibility with the Good News of Jesus Christ!

Get ready to REAP a harvest. Jesus said in Luke, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Mission: To Know Him and Make Him Known

We are so excited for everyone to gather together for the kick-off of Saturate in Lakeland! Please plan to join us! Bring along your ministry leaders and intercessors. You are welcome to invite any other churches who plan to participate in their own areas as well. The details are below:

His team has distributed hundreds of thousands of Jesus DVD’s in Canada and in his home country of Pakistan. In addition, this will be a time of worship, prayer, resourcing and instructions for reporting.

Expect to receive materials and maps at your church by or around Sept 8th. Bagging should be scheduled according to delivery. You will be notified when Shared materials are at a host location if applicable.

Helping Hands

Finally, Thank-you for your commitment and flexibility through this process! Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” This effort to Saturate our land with the Gospel includes not only Lakeland, but also Polk County, and all of the USA! It cannot be accomplished alone. May our work together prove great success for the Kingdom of God! I Corinthians 15:58 encourages us as brothers and sisters to, “Stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

UNITED CITY exists for the sole purpose of bringing churches throughout the city to intentionally pray, worship, and serve alongside one another.
