Remember, the church is not the building, the church is us! Real, living human beings in love with Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit, committed to being salt and light in the world. Despite all manner of challenges, opposition and persecution, the indestructible church of Jesus Christ continues to grow and advance all around the world.
As you pray, be encouraged by the words of Jesus in Matthew 16:18, “I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.”
We are a church that values diversity- different ages and generations, different theological persuasions, different ethnicities and languages, yet we are ONE body in Christ. Pray that we would continue to be a UNITED church, bound together with cords of love, humility and respect.
Pray for the pastors, elders and deacons that we would lead wisely and courageously.
Pray for our children, teenagers and young adults.
Pray for the elderly and frail, the lonely and bereaved.
Pray for marriages and families.
Pray that we would be a church on a mission- constantly looking beyond the building to those who have yet to encounter the love of Jesus.
Pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit that would bring revival, renewal and refreshing to many.
Pray for LIA and Living Hope as they seek to bring hope to the poor in the area.
