Tabletalk Devotionals & Meetup 8/14 | We will have a Tabletalk meetup on Sun, Aug 14th at 10AM.  We gather every 2nd Sunday morning for a time of community to talk and share about what we’ve been hearing/learning/wrestling with in our devotions.  Our church would like to foster and encourage a deeper devotional life.  Towards this, we have purchased a subscription to the devotional, Tabletalk.  We are providing these devotionals every month and hope that our congregation would grow together.

Prayer Needs

Pray for your +1.  Pray for the person God has led your heart for, someone who needs Jesus in their life.  Pray for God’s voice in calling you to be salt and light in their life.  Pray for opportunities for your +1 to discover and know Jesus.Praise God for our English congregation and God’s heart and direction we will be pursuing in the coming year.  We praise God for how He has sustained us in the past year and look forward toward how we can take steps to build God’s kingdom in the year ahead.  Pray for our leadership, as they move us as a congregation in prayer and God’s heart for people.  Praise God for his leading us in our 2016-17 budget and how we can utilize our finances to embody the values of prayer and mission.

Pray for the many who are leaving our community this summer.  We’ve already had to say good-bye to so many of our church family, and we have more to come.  Some are only temporary good-byes, and others are long term.  All of them are family and community we call church.  Pray for God’s continued presence and movement.  Pray for a church family to share life with wherever (and however long) they land. Pray for:
Michael & Queenie Van – Taiwan
Sarah Wong – Nicaragua (she’s back!)
Andrew & Connie Leung – Florida (temporary!)
Kim Chin – Kenya/Asia (temporary!)
Tiffany Tsai – Los Angeles
Andrew & Esther Brumme – France
Courtney Bell – Asia (she’s back!!)
David & Cindy Yu – Australia
And a few more who will be vacationing and traveling this summer.  Our church has the privilege and role of being a way-station for many.  We pray that they have been blessed by God and our community during their time with us; that they leave us more whole than when we received them.  In this unique space of ministry, we pray that we would live into the role and responsibility God has given to us.

Pray for our Chinese congregation as they search for a Chinese pastor.  Pray that God would call the shepherd our church needs to care for and lead our Chinese congregation.  Pray for listening hearts and sensitive spirits for our leaders as they interview candidates.

Pray for our church as we explore merging with Denver Chinese Evangelical Free Church.   Pray for God’s clear leading and our discernment of His voice.  Pray for a holy, God filled process in exploring this merger.  Pray for opportunity for our congregations to get to know one another.  Pray for our church, that we would not be motivated by fear, but by vision of what God is doing.  Pray for the Chinese congregation, that they would spend time in prayer and discernment about the merger.
