Representatives from 5 local churches met to plan for the National Day of Prayer May 2016. Last year we had over 200 come together to pray for the nation, the church, our leaders, businesses, schools, families, the homeless, the poor and hurt, health care, the arts, and missions. We expect to see even more people come this year.
30 people from eight different churches came to pray together Thursday at First Christian Reformed Church. We prayed for repentance for our personal and corporate sins. We prayed for the unity of Christian churches, for our government leaders, our children and other needs.
We prayed for revival that comes from our repentance, our unity and our willingness to love our community.
Jesus said my house shall be called a house of prayer. We experienced that tonight.

Our first Prayer Vigil to End Gun Violence will be on Thursday, January 7th, at 6:00PM at St. Dunstan’s Church. 722 N 145th St.Shoreline, WA 98133. The Prayer Vigil will last half an hour and will include music, prayer, conversation, and time for reflection. After the service there will be a time for conversation and sharing ideas. Our hope is to create a space where everyone, from pacifists who would never touch a gun to gun collectors and gun enthusiasts, can come together to work towards the shared goal of ending gun violence.
We and our churches have been placed in a community / neighborhood / city for a purpose. One purpose is to serve the community / neighborhood / city its people and institutions with the agape’ love that has been shown to us by Jesus. This type of love doesn’t expect a return or even a recognition. But another reason we, and our churches are here is that God would use the community around us to help us.
One way to evaluate our church is to look at Sunday attendance, the size of the congregation or the offering or how many were baptized. Another way to evaluate our church is to look at the health and well-being of the community around us. Looking at the needs of our community is daunting. There is far too much unnecessary illness, poverty, abuse, chemical dependency, divorce, child trauma, homelessness and violence for us to handle. We need the Holy Spirit, the whole Church and the help of the whole community to tackle these issues effectively. One of the best reader board signs on a church: Your help is needed
