Over thirty nationalities are represented within Brockton Assembly of God. At every gathering you will meet people from all over the world. Many parishioners are multi- lingual. However, we come together to worship one Lord, in the spirit of unity.
One of the underpinnings of Brockton Assembly of God is prayer. Prayer is offered up in the services, at various times during the week, in the Connect Groups, and at special times of prayer emphasis throughout the year. Furthermore, everyone is encouraged to have a daily time of personal prayer.
With so many nations represented at Brockton Assembly of God, it is fitting for the congregation to be passionate about world missions. Scores of missionaries are supported by Brockton Assembly of God, both at home and abroad. One of the highlights of every Fall is our World Missions Convention. At the Convention Faith Promises are received to support our missionary family around the globe.
Just prior to the Fall Missions Convention 2008, three ‘prayer flag poles’ were erected on our front lawn. The flag of the United States and the Christian flag will be flown continuously on two of three flag poles. The third prayer flag pole will be devoted to a rotating “Country of the Week”. A different flag will be raised on the international Flag Pole every Saturday morning and will become the focus of focused prayer throughout the week.
How to be involved in Prayer Flag Ministry
1. Join with others at the flag poles every Saturday at 9 a.m., rain or shine, following Men’s Prayer. Prayer will be offered by those gathered for the USA, for Brockton Assembly of God and the churches in the area, and for the country of the week.
2. Prayer will also be offered at the Sunday morning services for our country, for our churches, and for the flag displayed on the International Flag Pole.
A Final Word
Jesus Christ said: “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Brockton Assembly of God is striving to be such a place and such a people. You are invited to join with our church in its endeavor to pray for our country, the churches across Massachusetts, and for the nations of the world.
