LIFT SPECIAL EDITION THIS SUNDAY
- This Sunday September 10th we will meet in front of the BRIG BUILDING in Magnuson Park at 5pm. This is the building where our Community Dinner will be meeting.
From there we will have a short time of leadership direction for a guided prayer walk.
Upon your arrival everyone will be given a map with specific locations throughout the Magnuson park areas noted on it. At each of those spots there will be specific prayer prompts to lead you in your prayer time. This is something for all ages and we hope everyone can join us. You can take as much time as you'd like to participate.
This will give you a great tour of the community we will be loving and serving.
- There will be NO meal or childcare provided at this event because we want everyone to join us in praying for our community and for the launch of our community dinner church. Feel free to bring your own picnic dinner, or plan to connect with others over a meal after you have finished your prayer walk.
