Prayer Direction


Thank God for His power and authority over all creation (and over your life). Praise God for inviting, calling, and drawing you to Himself. Ask God to use you in His plan to make all people united under the Lordship of Jesus.

“Live It!” Challenge


A Warm Welcome - As God draws people to Himself, even people who surprise you or who are very different than you, thank God and seek to do all you can to reach out to these people and lovingly welcome them to the family of God. Make a list of 3-5 ways you can welcome new people to the church and the family of God. Then, seek to do these things.
