Grace Family Church
Continue in prayer for our church. We all foresee great things in the future for Grace Family Church Assembly of God. Pray for the growth of our assembly and for us to reach the thousands upon thousands of un-churched people in York County.
People need the Lord Jesus Christ and often they are not even aware that Jesus is what they are searching for and longing for. If everyone who does not regularly attend any church in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont suddenly all showed up at our district's Assemblies of God churches, each church body would be inundated with more than 35,000 people each. There are a lot of people to reach. Please be in prayer for our church.
Many members and adherents of Grace Family Church have met financial difficulties with this significant downturn in our economy. Please be in prayer for the financial needs of the church body.
Please be in prayer for the missionaries that we support financially. James 5:16 reminds us that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Our missionaries need our regular financial support to help plan their ministries. Their children's education, their cost of living, food and shelter expenses as well as their vehicular and travel expenses all are needs that have to be met. But they also need prayers from us as well.
If you can give a contribution to missions this month, please do so at church on Sunday morning. If you cannot make it to our church, you may give to the missionaries that we support through our 'Missions' page.
Let all of us be in prayer for those who are in need of a better financial situation. There have been so many job losses in the area and within the church body. Let's be there for our friends and neighbors as the Lord enables.
Pastor David and Martha Stanly
Please be in constant prayer for Pastor David and Martha. They need our prayers as they help steer Grace Family Church onto the path set before us and as our church grows. God has a plan for us to reach our community effectively with the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
New Fire Youth Group
Pray for our Youth Group as we seek a new leader!
Pray for all of the Sunday School teachers, volunteers and especially the children of Grace Family Church. Our children represent the future of Christianity in America. If you feel led to help out with our Sunday School, please see Pastor David for how you can help.
GFC Deacon Board
Please be in prayer for the members of the Board at Grace Family Church. Help the board members live up to the high standards set for Deacons and Overseers in 1st Timothy 3 and in Titus 1. Pray for the church and Pastor Stanly as we help to steer and guide Grace Family Church in the direction that God desires for us. We want to be in the center of His will. Be in prayer that God will place His hands on our shoulders and point us in the direction that He wants us to go. We want to be willing clay in the hands of the Potter.
If you have a prayer need and would like the church to pray for you and your family, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get it posted right here for you.
If you have a specific need that is unspoken, we can post that here as well.
Mark 9:23 (New International Version)
23 'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
