A Praying Church
"Each time, before you intercede, be quiet first, and worship God in His glory. Think of what He can do, and how He delights to hear the prayers of His redeemed people. Think of your place and priviledge in Christ, and expect great things!" - Andrew Murray
We hope very much that you'll be able to come along to our CORPORATE PRAYER MEETING this evening, Thursday 27th January, to round off our month of prayer for the pastor search effort. The sanctuary will be open at 7 pm, when you can come in and pray as you feel led, on your own or in small groups. From 8 to 9 pm, everyone will come together to pray, led by members of our search committee. At 9 pm, drinks and snacks will then be served in the Fellowship Hall.

The EIC Staff
"Every man or woman whose life has ever counted for God has been a person of prayer. A prayerless Christian is a powerless Christian. A prayerless Christian is also a contradiction because we should yearn for fellowship with the One who redeemed us. Throughout the Bible and the history of the church, those who made the greatest impact for God were those who prayed the most." - Billy Graham
