National Day of Prayer Connection

In the United States, today is the 65th annual National Day of Prayer, May 5, 2016. 

“An unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as we call on citizens to humbly come before His throne.”
The theme for 2016 is Wake Up America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to the God of our Fathers in reverence for His Holy Name.  It seems appropriate that the chosen Scripture for this year is Isaiah 58:1, “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.”

Thanks for taking the time to read through your weekly connection and making note of what pertains to you.

Saturday morning at 9:00 is the next meeting of the Women’s Book Study.  We will be meeting in the Ruth Room across from the office.  Feel free to bring your coffee or breakfast with you!  Please read Chapter #9 in preparation.

Sunday morning is a busy day!   The church parlor is open for prayer prior to worship.  As we continue in a season of prayer, this is an opportunity for you to specifically pray for our church.  You are welcome to come and go as you need to.  Please see Yuniya Simms with any questions.

Sunday worship follows at 10:00.  Wonderful singing, great music from our choir, time for praises and prayers, uplifting message from Pastor Kevin, a special offertory and a fun Kid’s Connection are packed into the morning!  A little thought gift will be given to all the women.  Hope to see you there!

A special Mother’s Day Bake Sale will be happening in Veno Hall during coffee time. Coffee and beverages will be available as usual.  For food snacks on this special day, WISH is supplying delicious homemade baked goods which are available for purchase.  All proceeds will benefit our church.  Be sure and stop by the Bake Sale!

Don’t forget  that Sunday is Mother’s Day – remember your Mom or some other special lady who has impacted your life.

Last call – if you are interested in church membership, please speak to Pastor Kevin today.

Young Life meets on Monday evening at 7:27 on the top floor here at church.
