Salvation & Growth

“…and the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47)

Pray for….

-Unbelievers who enter today to encounter Christ
-Those in the church with false assurance to be truly convicted of their sin and to be saved
-Increased passion for personal evangelism among us
-That we would be a church characterized by the Great Commission: disciples being created and cared for.
-Believers without a local church to find a home among us
-That we would be a growing church—growing in number, in mission, in godliness, and in the gospel
– God’s blessing on our ministry avenues for gospel growth (Alpha/Beta, Next Generation, Bridge, etc.)
