Breakthroughs always begin with prayer.

Many people in our church and community are struggling with a difficult situation or circumstance. They need a breakthrough in their life. It may be a breakthrough in their marriage, health, finances, job or an important relationship. Our community, and our country, need God’s help in dealing with the 3 "Vs": the Virus, the Violence and the Voting in November.

As we look at how we open up our ministries as safely as possible this fall, we are looking at taking a journey together that could transform all of our lives. 40 Days of Prayer is a church-wide campaign that will unite our congregation in prayer. Our people will learn how to pray with more confidence and greater faith than ever before.

Through this 40 day campaign, our church will:

  • Learn to pray for breakthroughs
  • Develop a daily habit of prayer
  • Experience God’s blessings
  • Trust God for everything
  • Grow in attendance
  • Unify as a congregation

We plan to launch 40 Days of Prayer on Sunday, September 20.

  • Are you willing to read a daily scripture and pray?
  • Are you willing to be in a small group for 6-7 weeks, either in person or by zoom?

The hub of this 40 Day Spiritual Growth Campaign is a beautiful prayer journal with a place for sermon notes, a place for the small group teaching notes and daily scriptures for the 40 days. As a congregation, let's take this 40 day journey together! Let’s grow in our personal relationship with God and let's pray for our church, our community and our country.
