If you have not already done so, please join us in our 40 Days of Fasting & Prayer. Take the opportunity for self-denial (food, a leisure pursuit, or some other regular activity) in order to create a time to focus on prayer. Prayer needs might include: reaching our community for Christ; extending our missions reach beyond our immediate community; our church and its ministries, as we move into a season of transition; our pastoral staff and church leadership as they fulfill their respective callings and responsibilities; our spiritual growth as a church family; those who serve us in government at the local, provincial and national levels; the special needs of members of our church family when and as they are identified.
To reach & discipline our world for Jesus
Isaiah 61: 1-3
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favour and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
