PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
 
+ Please pray for the Lord's anointing on Jay Traylor as the Lord sets him apart and ordains him to the priesthood this Saturday.

+ Pray for Bryon and Stacy Boulton and their family as they are currently working at a Christian hospital in Kenya.

+ Pray for those in our church who have recently lost parents or who have aging parents to care for, for the Lord to comfort and strengthen them. 

+ Pray that in the new year the Lord will deepen our knowledge and love of him as a church, and that he will lead people to new faith in Christ through us.
