Top Ten Fall Prayer Requests

Over the summer months of June, July and August, we as a ministry prayed for 10 specific prayer requests. It was exciting to see how God answered including:

The hiring of Gabe Pethtel as secondary principal at Lititz Christian School and Kimberly Taylor as Director of MorningStar Childcare and Academics; Seeing 231 students enrolled at the beginning of the school year; a 3% increase in offerings over last summer; Seeing the beginning of promotion for our Fall Connect Campaign; Seeing all of our teens return safely from Ireland, Operation Barnabas, and Momentum Youth Conference; Receiving all approvals granted for our foyer renovation and expansion; Seeing a 17% increase in Sunday morning attendance over last summer; and seeing the launch of our new school website and church logo. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness to us.

Tomorrow begins a new fall quarter and below are the Top Ten Prayer Requests for our ministry for September, October and November. I hope that you will pray for these weekly, if not daily, as nothing of eternal importance happens apart from prayer!

To see 100 Connect Groups active during our Fall Connect Campaign

To launch of our new church website scheduled for October

To see MorningStar Academics and Childcare pass their state inspection in September with flying colors

To see 100 people baptized on November 15

That June 20, 2010 would be open for a “big event” at Clipper Stadium (baseball schedule for next season is set in November)

To be at or ahead of budget in the General Fund on November 30th

To average 1600 on Sunday mornings over the 13 weeks of Sep, Oct and Nov

To see our educational ministries (LCS and MS) bring in $75,000 in fund-raising and donations

To see the outer shell of the café/office expansion completed prior to winter

To see each one in our church family be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that we will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might (Colossians 1:9-19)
