Preparing for Sunday:

Sunday we began a month long series entitled, “What is the Church?” We will examine the question by looking at various characteristics of  the Church. This week will be, “The Church is a Praying Body.”

Some questions to ponder before Sunday:

How do you pray for Eastminster?

How are you involved in praying with and for Eastminster?

What are specific areas of concern you can be praying about for Eastminster?
