WICHITA, KS - Members of Cornerstone Fun Church, which has 5 nursing homes located within a 3 mile radius of its building, held a prayer meeting Wednesday night asking God to show them how to use their time and resources to reach out to their community, sources confirmed.
Church leaders stated they were asking that God would just give them a sign showing them what kinds of fun, slick ministries they could start, all while the Lord had placed several institutions filled with the sick and dying within a few blocks of their location.
Church elders and members, who drove past several convalescent centers that house the sick and elderly on the way to the meeting, prayed fervently for God to reveal ways to minister to the needy in their city. "We just need the Lord to open doors for the gospel to reach the lonely and the hurting in our neighborhood. We were thinking about opening a coffee house, or a new skate park," said one member during the meeting. "God, show us how best to love our neighbors!" he added.
The meeting was disrupted only once by sirens from an ambulance arriving at the nursing home across the street, to take one of its ill residents to the hospital. Once the distraction had passed, the prayer meeting voted in favor of building a state-of-the-art fitness center as the "obvious" calling the Lord was pressing on their hearts.
