1-1-1 for Missions
We are currently at 59 congregations participating in 1-1-1.

Won’t you consider joining us as we support the DRLM and Concordia Lutheran Mission in Myerstown, PA? YOU can support them through your prayers for their ministries to grow as they evangelize to the community around them. Joining 1-1-1 will help our two missions as they continue to witness Christ's love as they share their heartfelt faith in Christ.

Your prayer concerns are important to the English District. When you submit a prayer request, it will be posted in this weekly eNewsletter. The Bible's promise is true: "If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us" (1 John 5:14). Please email  Holly Scheer  with your prayer requests.

The district daily prayers for August are now available . We invite you to pray with us!
