PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
 

+ Please pray for our clergy, staff and Leadership Council as they review the survey results and begin planning for how to strengthen the spiritual health of our church.

+ Pray for the ministry of our Mission Partner, Gateway Pregnancy Center, as they love and care for women and men with unexpected pregnancies, and the babies they are carrying.

+ Pray also for our government leaders to make decisions that care well for people, and that also bring government employees back to work.
