60 Days of Prayer: World Mission Offering

These prayers come from sixty servants and staff of International Ministries. Their inspiration is John 14:14, “Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” 

[9.1] Guide Master’s students in Bolivia, Brazil, Mexico, and the U.S. as they learn to lead transformational churches that proclaim the gospel and care for the marginalized. J.D. & Rhonda Reed, Bolivia

[9.2] Lord, be the loving father to those who don’t know a father’s love. Restore wholeness to those who are broken and feel unloved. Sarah Nash, Bolivia.

[9.3] In witness to the living water, may we bring sustainable practices that restore access to clean water to the millions who suffer the consequences of humankind’s lack of stewardship of creation. Barbara & Dwight Bolick, Chile.

[9.4] Messiah, we pray to be so immersed in your living waters that you spill over everyone we meet in Colombia and everywhere you take us. Carlos Bonilla & Mayra Giovanetti, Colombia.

[9.5] God with us, thank you for bringing us living water, your Son, Jesus. Every day as we drink in the Spirit, help us to give out of the overflow to others. Peter & Sarah McCurdy, Costa Rica.

[9.6] We pray for women living with injustice, that through Christian ministries they will experience God’s love and transforming power, allowing them to walk toward justice. Sue Hegarty, Costa Rica.

[9.7] Lord, let your living water flow freely, sweetly and pure, refreshing our Congolese co-laborers, and then flowing from them to bless other believers, their communities and even their nation. Ed & Miriam Noyes, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

[9.8] Lord, forgive us for forsaking you, the fountain of living water, and instead building for ourselves leaky cisterns that have stagnant water. [Jeremiah 2:13] Glen & Rita Chapman, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

[9.10] Please call laborers to serve Vanga – an accountant, a maintenance supervisor, a teacher and a surgeon – to strengthen the work that is already being done there. Kathy & Tim Rice, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

 

September Movie [9.13.19]

The Waterfront Crime Commission is about to hold public hearings on union crime and underworld infiltration. As workers are turned against each other, Terry Malloy inadvertently participates in the murder of fellow longshoreman Joey Doyle. Union boss Johnny Friendly orchestrates the murder along with other illegal dockside activities, aided by Terry's brother Charley. Terry begins to feel pangs of conscience. When Joey's sister Edie sees more in Terry than he sees in himself and Father Barry urges him on, Terry reassesses his past and begins to regain responsibility for his actions.

Join us on Friday night, September 13 at 6:30 p.m. for this much celebrated movie starring Marlon Brando and introducing Eva Marie Saint. Written and directed by Elia Kazan. Water and popcorn are always free. 

 

Ladies Tea

The women of the church are invited to a Ladies tea on September 15 in the Fellowship Hall. RSVP with Claudette or Emily. All ages are welcome. Dress as fancy as you like. This event will follow the worship service.
