Continue to pray for Jon Van Zee as he begins his work in eastern Asia. Continue to remember those with physical problems, undergoing treatments, shut-ins, those in Leisure Living, and PVNH.

ALL ARE WELCOME to join in a short time of prayer next Sunday from 9:40-9:50 a.m. downstairs as we pray specifically for our pastor, the worship time to come, as well as the work of our missionaries bringing God’s love to people who have never known Him.

Powerful Prayer: Each Sunday a team meets to pray between 9:40-9:50 a.m. for the Holy Spirit to move through our church during worship, as well as for the concerns of our missionaries as they spread the gospel. If you have a prayer request that the team can pray over at that time and throughout the week, please fill out one of the forms in mailboxes this morning and drop it in Kim Zomer’s church mailbox. Requests will remain confidential and can be submitted anonymously if desired.

GRACE CONGREGATION: God is constantly at work creating in us a clean heart—let’s all work together to keep the church clean. After all, many hands make light work. There is a sign-up sheet for volunteer monthly cleaning. “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

THANK YOU so much for sowing into what I am doing here in Houston, TX. I am so encouraged by your generous gifts that you gave me during your combined Labor Day service. I am so blessed with an awesome community that wants to see me thrive in missions!  Blessings ~~ Carissa Bruinsma, Aurora Ref. Church
