  • As this is the season for harvest, ask God to make you more aware of the spiritual harvest and help us to become willing laborers.
  • We thank and praise God for our missionaries.  We pray today for Keith and Mary Beavon, Paul & Dori Hoekstra, Murray and Carol Moerman, Al & Sue Schreuder, Jake & Sharon Moss.
  • We pray today for all the church planters, in particular we pray for Pastor George Grevenstuk and Connections.
  • We remember Heather Dood as she has begun work at the Crossing with the neighborhood children.  May God bless and use her.
  • We are thankful today for all our Grace volunteers who show God’s love in practical ways each week.
  • We thank and praise God for the beautiful colors of the changing seasons.
  • Please continue to keep Linda Emelander in your prayers. We pray for encouragement and strength.
  • We continue to lift up Earl & Clare Reifel and the people they serve in West Africa as they battle the effects of the Ebola crisis there.
  • There are many friends and family of our church members that need your prayers this week.  Please continue to pray for Lola De Young and her parents Matt & Lindsey.  Also, Barb, friend of Della Sawyer, undergoing chemotherapy; Marie Mc Donald, friend of Esther Hoag, who has cancer; Caitlin, friend of Abbey Licari, diagnosed with Leukemia; Rachel Mulder’s father who recently had a stroke, and Austin Wilson, great grandson of Ken Wylie with heart concerns.

  • Pray for our Shut-in’s: Mr. Ralph Bolt, Mrs Tena DeVink, Mrs. Wilma Kamphuis, Mrs Ruth Ver Merris.
  • NEIGHBORHOOD CHURCH MINISTRIES is encouraging the community of churches in Wyoming to lift one another up in prayer.  Each month they will list a few churches that we all can pray for specifically.  This week we pray for the Pier Church.  Let’s join together in this effort to encourage one another and lift one another up in prayer. 

As other prayers are shared, you are invited to write them down and include them in your prayers for our congregation this week. Please keep the church informed of your prayer needs and praise reports.
