PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
 
 
+ Pray for the Church worldwide, that the gospel would be powerfully and fully proclaimed on Easter, and that men, women and children across the globe would put their faith in Jesus for the first time!

+ Pray for the Church in Egypt as they mourn the loss of those martyred last week, and as they bear witness to Christ's love on the heels of that violence.

+ Pray for our Great Egg Hunt outreach  on Saturday, that many visitors from the nearby neighborhoods, and many of our friends and neighbors would attend, and then be moved to become part of our church.
