A Paradigm of Prayer
A healthy church prays together about everything (4:23-24a).
A healthy church praises God as a part of their prayer (4:24b).
A healthy church aligns their prayers with Scripture (4:25-26).
A healthy church acknowledges the sovereignty of God in their prayers (4:27-28).
A healthy church prays for bold witness in Jesus name (4:29-30).
A healthy church waits for God’s answer (4:31).
Living on Mission:
The church of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit,
prays together about everything, aligning themselves with God’s purpose
as they await His answer.

“Why They Stay”
November 3 , 2018
Research shows that teenagers are some of the most religiously active Americans, but American twenty-somethings are the least religiously active.
We are inviting the entire Fellowship Family to join us Saturday, November 3, 8:30-1:30 as we discuss what we can do to help change this phenomenon.
Break out sessions will be offered and led by Fellowship pastoral staff.
Childcare will be provided along with a continental breakfast and lunch catered by Fat Daddy’s.

Fellowship Volunteer Opportunities
Ushers – We are looking for some men and women who are willing to work with a team and serve as ushers. Email Michael at email@example.com for more information.
Valet Parking – Our new Northwest Entrance will provide a shorter distance from your vehicle to a seat in the Worship Center for anyone who needs it. When it is completed we want to provide valet parking for our elderly and anyone unable to manage the distance from the parking spaces. We are looking for a dedicated team with a big heart for serving. For more information, contact Michael Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every year, CoHO (City of Hope Outreach)provides a Thanksgiving meal for the people living within the communities they serve. For some in the community, their financial constraints mean that this is the only opportunity they have to celebrate this holiday. We have the opportunity to partner with CoHO by providing food items for this meal. If you would like to help, please contact Mary Nabholz at 501-499-1083 or email email@example.com.
