40 Days for Life Vigil 
Come gather with others from Bethlehem under the leadership of Pastor John Piper for a time of prayer on Saturday, April 1, at 10am outside Planned Parenthood St. Paul. We will pray that Jesus Christ would be exalted as mighty Lord and merciful Savior, and that he would cause hearts to change so that abortion is renounced and abortion clinics close, and that the people and leaders of Minnesota would seek life-giving ways to face the challenges of difficult pregnancies. And more. Find details on the SOLM webpage

Saturday Morning Prayer
Gather with others on Saturday, April 1, at 9am to pray for God’s blessing and revival upon ourselves, our families, our church, our cities, our nation, and all nations. Our labor is in vain unless God moves, and we know God has promised to reward to those who earnestly seek him through the blood of Jesus. So let’s go to throne of his grace and mercy with confidence and trembling and ask his blessing upon us. Find more details
