Bible Prophecy Reunites Arlington Community

Several months ago, Cristian Bobocea, Arlington Church pastor, presented his church family with an idea to present an outreach series called Prophecies of Hope.

It was an easy decision for the church board to make. The Bible prophecy series would give their community a chance to come together after the worst parts of the pandemic to learn and grow together.

Bobocea put together 14 talks using a variety of material that was intended to give non-Christians a comprehensive look at the Bible and prophecy. 

In small churches, outreach meetings are a challenge as the number of supporting volunteers can equal most of the congregation. Between the audio/video, live internet and the registration roles as well as volunteers for child care and greeters, most of the church is involved.

The Holy Spirit blessed Arlington Church with a miracle as the attendance of non-members as well as members was consistent and represented about equal ratios. Even in midweek meetings, attendance exceeded 25 people.

The meetings concluded on April 23, 2022, with a baptism and decisions to follow Jesus. While the results of the meetings are still unfolding, Arlington Church members prayerfully expect that this is just the first of many baptisms.
