Praise & Prayer


  • For increasing clarity of vision on transition
  • For talented, godly leaders who are working hard on a plan
  • For committed members who are supporting our mission


  • For congregational consensus regarding the proposed transition plan:
    • "one heart and mind" (Acts 4:32)
    • "being in full accord and of one mind" (Phil. 2:20)
    • "united in the same mind and judgment" (1 Cor. 1:10)
  • That 4th quarter giving would be strong enough to not saddle campuses (and possible separate churches) with extra debt in 2023.
