October 15 announcements

This week all congregations in Eastern District & Franconia Conference are praying for Blooming Glen Mennonite Church.  Please pray that they would sense God’s specific leading and guidance in this current season of group prayer, that they would grow in being a vital spiritual presence in the community, and that they would relationally, lovingly represent Jesus daily among the individuals with whom they live, work, and play. To read more about Blooming Glen, go to franconiaconference.org/profiles.
