It is amazing how God has gently but clearly drawn this group together over the last two months.  We are continuing to meet each week, and frequently twice a week for prayer and discussion.  We are grateful for your continued prayers and encouragement.  Our meetings with various leaders in our Church and with our Connect Groups was extremely beneficial.  God is answering your prayers for unity and clarity…please know of our sincere appreciation for your faithful prayers on our behalf.  As promised, we will continue to update our prayer needs on a weekly basis. 

 

April 12

Our first month of serving together has been very productive. Thank you for praying for us and, to those who were able to join us at the Night of Prayer, on April 7, we sincerely appreciate it. Presently we are in the process of visiting all of our Adult and Student Connect Groups, meeting individually with several staff members, praying together and handling various administrative matters. We are grateful for the multiple recommendations we have received via email at pastorsearch@gabc.org . We do hope you will continue to check this page for Prayer Updates and PSC Updates.
