There is no Men's Prayer on Wednesday morning, but Pastor Jim wants all men to rally around this prayer focus: "Today, as we continue to press in, Our Father who are in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Let us remember to Hollow the name of God, allow the Holy Spirit to cleanse our hearts and grant us the understanding of how we can participate in His will being done in our lives and the lives of those we influence."

I want you to know we are praying for you and your family in light of the Coronavirus situation. I also want to remind you that our God is on the throne.
In times like these, the enemy's desire is to bring fear or dismay, but I want you know that fear is a liar. Our God's the God of peace, courage and faithfulness. We in His Kingdom can press forward by faith.
Together, let us remember the words of the apostle Paul to Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:7.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
In this brief season, which will absolutely pass, this is my prayer for you out of Romans 15:13:
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
Finally, from a place of wisdom and not fear, we've made some plans about this coming Sunday and events this weekend that I wanted to share with you verbally. Please watch this two-minute video:
All activities and events held at Faith's facilities will be postponed/rescheduled. This includes FSM, Celebrate Recovery, Small Groups that meet at Faith's facilities, etc.
Service will be held online this Sunday at 10AM. Join us live here. We'll have a live, interactive chat room, an online host and online prayer room to accompany the service.

We're incredibly grateful for our maintenance and cleaning crews who have been working diligently since the beginning to take extra precautions to sanitize and clean our buildings daily.
We'll continue to monitor the situation closely with input from local agencies and the CDC to assess the plan beyond this weekend.
Let's be on guard to pray for all of those impacted by the virus, as well as global health officials and agencies dealing with this situation.
I love you all, and I'm looking forward to all of us joining online together this Sunday!
