Thunder Bay Community Church, Thunder Bay, Ont.
We have been living in a season of growth and are about to stretch our wings into two congregations. We are thrilled and humbled by the new people that the Spirit is leading to us for Sunday worship.
We ask for prayer for the congregation to desire to mature in their faith and share their faith (becoming disciples and making disciples). Pray that our congregation will embrace the new people that have been attending to help them feel a part of the family. Pray for God to continue to financially provide for his church here, and that our people will fully trust him with their finances and be generous to those in need.
Thunder Bay has become an immigration pilot city for 2020. Pray that newcomers will experience a successful transition into our city. Pray that our entire church family will be used by the Lord to assist them and provide for them with welcoming hearts through practical assistance and genuine relationships. Pray for the families of newcomers who are still in their home countries, that they can be reunited soon (often one person comes alone, leaving behind their spouse, children, etc.). Pray for wisdom for us to hear and obey God’s will.
