Camp Meeting Prayer Room Volunteers
If you can volunteer in the prayer room, June 14-17, 2023, please email
We are looking for volunteers who can offer 4 or more hours each day. Please pray about this and let us know if you are interested.
Camp Meeting is right around the corner and we do need 2-3 more volunteers.  Thanks!

24-10 Prayer Focus
I presented the idea to David who brought it to the Administrators. They love the big idea to pray 24 hours a day for 10 days. This will be our big prayer focus this fall. We are working on flyers and posters to roll out soon but before that time your participating is needed.
The idea began with a prayer coordinator and spread rapidly to 10 churches. We began holding "Weekly Wednesdays" at 6 a.m. for a time to unpack the idea and the structure for prayer coordinators. For example we are opening up a 24 hour Zoom each day so people can pray anytime day or night together during the 10 days of prayer. In order to make this user friendly we are asking churches to sign up in advance for a 4- hour time slot. During this time they will have volunteers man the Prayer Room on Zoom. They can sign up for 1/2 hour or 1 hour segments. This will insure that there is someone to pray with when people enter the room.

Yes, this is a big BIG project and your mission should you choose to accept it, is to learn how it works and share this with your members. Each Wednesday morning at 6 a.m. we meet by Zoom to unpack this.  Or you can call 509-242-0512 for more information. Below the zoom link is how this might be advertised to your members. We will offer flyers soon!

The 24-10 Vertical Experience

Praying Together 24 hours a day for 10 days for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, Serving one more, and preparing for Christ's Coming! 

You are invited: to commit to a deep season of prayer; to sign up for the 24-10 Vertical Experience and receive a daily devotional with this same focus. The 10 days of devotions will be from the devotional Book by Dennis Smith, "50 Days of Prayer to Prepare for the Latter Rain and Christ's Return." Those who wish can purchase the eBook for $2.99 and continue for the 50 days. For a deeper experience, we will make this available in daily emails for those who sign up. (sign up will be available soon)

Prayer Blanket Ministry - September 10
Are you looking for a one-day mission trip?  We recently asked Sara Rogers from Canada to present information about prayer blanket ministry and how it dovetails with personal prayer sessions. Now I have been asked to provide approximately 200 blankets, ready to tie the edges, for a very special event, If you can help, we are looking for 8-10 individuals to come together with scissors. I will purchase (or it can be donated) 225 yards of fleece material. The date: September 10, Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon or however long it takes to cut the label these blankets. Lunch provided. To participate call Kathy at 509-232-0512.
