Among our local and global community,

  • For the families and loved ones of the 6 who lost their lives this weekend due to tornadoes in Tennessee. We pray for those who remain in harm's way, and for the rescue and support teams on the ground providing aid this morning.

  • Those in harm's way in the Israel-Hamas conflict, and for the many whose lives have been cut short due to violence

  • We continue to pray for those in Ukraine, Afghanistan, and many other places around the world in the midst of conflict and strife.

  • We lift up the village on 6th and Orchard, remembering too those of our neighbors who remain especially vulnerable in this season. We pray for the fervor to continue doing all we can to care for the least among us in tangible, faith-filled ways.

  • We lift up our Global Ministries partners this week in the Dominican Republic.
