Church Plant Prayer Focus
Please continue to pray for Connections families and those whose
lives they will touch as we reach out to the surrounding community
this summer in our “Block Parties”. Our July 26 block party north of
Grace on Royal Oak and 32nd was well received by the neighborhood
with more than 50 people in attendance.
The next Block Party is for Plas, Hubal, and Kentfield, west of Grace,
on August 23. We invite the people of Grace to join Shari Dood for a
prayer walk there on Sunday, August 19. Simply get a cup of coffee,
grab a cookie, and meet Shari by the front door. Walk if you can, or
drive through, and pray (with your eyes openJ) on your way home.
