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 care for families affected by violence in our nation. Pray that as the Church, we would be steadfast in love, full of the hope and peace of Christ. 

+ Pray for the efforts of a few Apostles members to bring a worship service to the Cardinal, next door to our building. 

+ Pray for tonight's Fernando Ortega/Jonathan & Amanda Noël concert, that non-Christians would join us and begin to be introduced to Jesus.
