Prayer Requests

Keep our camps in your prayers as they follow the government's d irectives and cancel all overnight camps for the summer of 2020. This includes Hidden Acres, Silver Lake and Fraser Lake. Pray for them as well as Willowgrove Day Camp as they determine what services and activities they can provide to keep campers connected with their camp. Pray for the leaders and staff of our camps and the children who attend camp as they adjust to this reality. Susan’s daughter Maeyken is the Day Camp Director at Willowgrove.

Hour of Prayer, Together in Spirit

Sunday, June 7, from 2-3 p. m.
For the past number of years Christians in Waterloo Region have gathered in Victoria park to worship and pray. Unable to do that this year, Prayer in the Park will be transformed to a radio/online format this year. Live on the Radio on Faith Fm and broadcast online by Kingdom Insight TV!
Words from Prayer in the Park Organizers: God’s call to draw His people together is clear throughout Scripture. We see it through the feasts, sacred assemblies, and times of renewal, even in the early church. Connecting in one place refreshes us and renews and reminds us we are part of the one body of Christ and God is with us. Connecting in one place is not unity, rather it is an encouragement that we already have unity. We must continually make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit, so that we can become the mature body of Christ. We are meant to be connected. We are the supporting ligaments joining the body of Christ and holding it together, as we grow and are built up in love, and each part does its work.
