Scripture & Prayer Requests

1a
Romans 6:8-11


Amplified Bible (AMP)


8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
9 Because we know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him.
10 For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].
11 Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.

Great Job Sunday!



Hello Choir,

 I want to say you all did a excellent job Sunday morning. Let's continue to work hard and build this music dept.
Thank you to all who work with the various choirs (Doves, Men's chorus, the Children's Choir, The Teen Choir).
I'm excited about making this be one of the best music departments in the world..

Love you all and many blessings 😊

Isaiah Education & Mass Incarceration Team


Dear GFMBC Family,

Our public school system has reached a critical point.
Nationally and in Minnesota, children of color are more likely to be disciplined, suspended or expelled than their white counterparts, and they are less likely to graduate. These factors in schools often direct our at-risk youth into the criminal justice system before they can graduate from high school. The school-to-prison pipeline sends a grim message to our youth of color that they are criminals and people to be feared.
But as people of faith, we believe in a different message: all children are sacred and deserve the opportunity to be fully included in our society.
ISAIAH parents and educators of faith have been working with Minneapolis Public School administrators to end racial gaps in its school discipline policies. Some policy changes have been made, however, we must continue to take critical steps forward to create equity in our public schools.
JOIN US!

7 – 9 pm
Redeemer Lutheran Church
1800 Glenwood Ave., Mpls, MN, 55405
••

Click here to download and share the flyer
We will gather with parents and educators of faith from the Minneapolis school district to:
  • Discuss how we will make all schools welcoming, restorative and safe for students of color.
  • Examine what we must do to take bold steps to truly eliminate discipline disparities.
  • Share stories about the impact of recent policy changes to end discipline disparities.
Our future requires that everyone be equipped with the tools and understanding needed to participate in our democracy and contribute to our communities.
Register for the event: www.tinyurl.com/educatorsoffaith
We look forward to seeing you there!
Sincerely,
ISAIAH Education and Mass Incarceration Team
