Pray for our India Partners & Join us Thursday at 12pm

Last Saturday, the Missions Office became aware of a vote that is taking place this month in the state of Jharkhand in India. The cabinet of Jharkhand will vote on a new law that will try to stop conversions and evangelism. The bill states that “anyone found involved in forced/allurement conversion will be punished with four years of imprisonment plus a fine of one Lakh ($1500). Most of our Ho Unreached People Group families live in the state of Jharkhand. Whether this bill passes or not, WJBC will continue its partnership with the Ho UPG, but please pray this bill does not pass.

This Thursday, we will also have a special called prayer meeting at noon in the Worship Center. Please join us as we intercede on behalf of our friends and partners in India.

Discover West Jackson on August 27

Following our 10:30am worship, we invite you to join us for Discover West Jackson. If you are new to West Jackson, join us for a chance to learn about the mission, vision, and beliefs of West Jackson. You can e-mail your RSVP to Carrie Shields or mark the Discover WJ box on your Connection Card and drop it in the offering plate.
