When we began the campaign to raise funds for the Unaccompanied Students Initiative in June, we gave the congregation the opportunity to sign a Prayer Covenant card to pray both for this congregation and for the initiative throughout the course of the weeks and years of the campaign. Any undertaking should be preceded by prayer. Though we have completed the initial launch of this campaign, now is the time when we must stay the course and continue to pray and work toward our goal.
We have chosen to reflect God’s love by partnering with U.S.I. in building a home for those young women in our community who need shelter, safety and caring from all of us, their neighbors. This allows them to continue their education and face a brighter future. We strive for a community in which people understand, accept, support, and love one another in mutual dependence. Whether you signed a Prayer Covenant card or not, please join us in prayer to continue asking God for His blessing and power for the completion of this project.
We can and must take everything to God in prayer, for God, in his perfect love and perfect wisdom says in scripture: Jeremiah 29: 11-14a “For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and you will find Me, when you search for me with all your heart. And I will be found by you,” declares the Lord.
