Prayers & Praise Line

Church Plant Prayer Focus

 Thank you for your faithful prayers for our block parties.

 More than 200 neighborhood homes within in blocks of this campus 

 received 3 mailings inviting them to Connections. Over 100 

 neighbors without a church home attended the block parties. In

 follow-up visits, we personally spoke with more than half of those

 homes. These neighbors will be our forward focus with letters, visits

 and service projects.

 Please pray for:

- Opportunities to invite neighbors and businesses to join

 Connections.

- New families joining in God’s plan for Connections.

- Connections families actively sharing their faith and building 

 relationships of trust.

- Fundraising success and local church supporters.
