“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2
Praise the Lord for some local school districts saying, “Yes” to Good News Clubs restarting this semester.
Praise the Lord for faithful volunteers that are ready to restart clubs. Pray for our volunteers to come back to the clubs they served in before COVID and for new laborers. “Pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest!” (Luke 10:2)
Praise the Lord that there are at least three new churches wanting to partner with CEF to start new clubs in schools.
Please pray for volunteer, Mary Rhoads, as she oversees the clubs that Sherie used to help. Also, Mary will be attending a two-week course at Children’s Ministries Institute at CEF Headquarters at the end of September to equip her to train others in our area.
Pray for wisdom and creativity about details for a fall fundraiser for the ministry. Pray for Miriam Kisch as she takes the lead for overseeing this event. Dates being considered are either Nov. 2nd or 4th.
Pray for the chapter’s pilot partnership with Sports World Ministries Nov. 1-5th. May God encourage and give Becky Leatherbury wisdom as she spearheads contacting our principal contacts to allow a free assembly in their school. Steve Grant, former Colts player, will be the assembly speaker. Pray that this partnership helps more kids attend GNC™ and God uses it to draw kids and family members to Himself.
Praise the Lord for His help in the transition of Sherie heading to serve at CEF Headquarters as a Leadership Training Instructor. She will be training new staff from across the country. She will also serve on other education projects. Pray for the next director of God’s choosing to serve in the Central Indiana Chapter.
