Praying a long time for a church like City Hope GR


Featured image for “Praying a long time for a church like City Hope GR”

A few weeks ago one of the people we had met (who has an interest in the ministry of City Hope GR), contacted us about meeting with another family they had heard about. This is always exciting and seems to be happening more and more! When meeting with the referred family, they mentioned how they have been impacted by various disability and that they had been praying a long time for a church like City Hope GR. God keeps working!

We met with a college student who desires to get involved, he was sharing how autism has been part of his life, specifically regarding relationships and opportunities. God has been opening doors for him and he continues to see his importance and how he’s able to make a difference. Through that conversation, another person he knows has become very interested in City Hope GR as well. God keeps connecting people!

Late March we held another info gathering – an opportunity for people to come, find out more and ask questions regarding this new church. We had been praying for God to do something special again. The day before we already knew He had good plans. 8 new people were there, with some committing to be involved in God’s work through City Hope GR! Additional referral contacts are also already coming as a result of those who God brought on Saturday. Again, God keeps directing and doing what only He can do!

IMPORTANT MESSAGE! -share this!

This week our denomination is holding virtual Council of Delegates meetings! Today they had a 6 hour Global Missions Ministry Committee meeting and then will pick things up with full meetings on Weds- Friday.

Council of Delegate meetings may not sound like the most exciting, but there is a lot going on in our denomination with looking at the US/Canadian relationship, the upcoming turnover of denomination leadership, the cancellation of Synod 2021, and all the ministry opportunities and challenges that we face - especially in the light of Covid.

PLEASE BE IN PRAYER FOR OUR CLASSIS DELEGATE - David Struyk - AND FOR THESE MEETINGS!

If all they are is "business" meetings, they will be spinning their wheels. Let's pray that a special anointing of His Spirit is given to all delegates so that they may make wise decisions that help build up His Church and preserve the unity of His Church!

We ask that you join us in this prayer.
