A call to prayer
Our Pastoral Team and Deacon Board is inviting our church to have a time of dedicated prayer for the next 4 weeks prior to the special members meeting on November 29th. The goal is to intentionally give space for God to step in, to take charge and allow His Spirit to minister to us individually and as a collective as we seek for self-reflection, resolve, a heart of openness/love and His direction moving forward. Let anticipate and experience the Lord “with us”. Please refer to this week’s communication letter for more details.
Fasting and Prayer
On Wednesday, November 25th. A self-directed guide has been sent to brothers and sisters through your fellowship/small group network.
Praying Together as a Church
On Wednesday November 18th at 8pm via Zoom. An invitation will be sent through your fellowship/small group network.
Operation Christmas Child
