PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
 
+ Pray for those who have been affected by the winter storm this week and for the road crews and first responders working around the clock to keep us safe and warm.

+ Pray for our children, students and adults as we begin Spring Sunday School classes this week,
that the Lord would build up and sanctify everyone in our church who participates in these classes. Pray for wisdom and the leading of the Holy Spirit for our teachers. 

+ Pray also for our Mission Partner, Young Life,  as they reach out to high school and middle school students with the love of Christ, that many students would put their faith in Jesus for the first time.
