Announcements
Prayer Focus
 

We focus prayers on the needs of our community both as a congregation and outside our walls. Each week we ask you to pray for the ministries and health of a church in our city and a church on our district, as well as a group of people who are likely to need the extra prayer support.

Wichita Area Church: New Salem Missionary Baptist   

Kansas District Church: Emporia First Church of the Nazarene

Special focus: We pray this week for those at the frontlines of the pandemic and those who have lost loved ones and those who are sick or still struggling with complications from COVID-19.

We encourage you to find ways to engage your faith beyond Sundays. The things we focus on and the actions we take help form our faith, values and lives. We often post suggested practices on social media on Mondays, but we also encourage you to:

  • Weekly Scripture Readings: Jeremiah 29:1, 4-14, Jeremiah 29:15-23, Jeremiah 30:1-11, Jeremiah 31:1-14, Jeremiah 31:31-40, Ezekiel 1:1-3; 2:1-10, Ezekiel 3:1-11, Ezekiel 37:1-14 (next Sunday's main text)
     

  • We have curated an Advent Spotify playlist to help you prepare your hearts for the coming of Jesus at Christmas and when he returns to bring the full rule and reign of God. 

  • Where can you practice patience in waiting this week? Drive only the speed limit. Take the longer line. Forgo the microwave. 

  • Spend time in prayer (private, out loud, journaling, whatever) lamenting the places you have struggled to hope. Name them. God can handle our burdens. 

 

  • How can you provide hope this week? Where can you meet needs? Bring joy? Bring rest? Bring light?
