At the beginning of the summer God led us into praying a specific prayer together - in our private prayer times, in our services, and in our prayer meetings. Check it out here.

We prayed it, and guess what?

God is answering!!! We have some evidence that speaks to this (new people coming, some brand new salvations, people we’ve known a long time joining us, etc.) but of greatest importance has been the Presence of God in our services, some great God-encounters, and how we have felt HIM alongside us, getting us ready for what’s in store. God is surely with us!

Let’s keep praying this prayer!

  • Keep it handy: Print it out and put it on your fridge, make a note on your phone, book mark the page, or use the copy of it in your bulletin. When you see it, pick a paragraph or two and pray it!

  • Join with us on Aug. 13, 7-8:30 p.m. at Rowan and Mara’s to lift our requests up to God together. All Welcome! (Text 403.816.1684 for addr, and to rsvp so we have an idea on numbers attending) This is the 2nd of two Summer Prayer Meetings and we invite and encourage anyone and everyone to attend. Even if you’re new to prayer - come and experience what it’s like to be a part of someone else’s life-changing God-encounter!

  • Politics matter! What happens politically determines policy, and policy affects people’s lives - for good or for bad. That’s what happens politically matters to followers of Christ. As we head into an important election season federally this fall, here is a great list of resources to stay politically informed. Click around and do some reading, and some signing up.
