Prayer Focus: Praying God’s Word (personalize it!)

We ask God to give you complete knowledge of His will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with all His glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father.Colossians 1:9-12

Let your roots grow down into Him and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught and you will overflow with thankfulness.Colossians 2:7

MB Church of Manitoba (MBCM) Assembly of Churches – March 1-2

The annual MBCM Assembly of Churches will be held on March 1-2 at Fort Garry MB Church. Delegates are appointed by their church leadership who have been chosen to represent the church as a whole. If you are interested in being a delegate, please contact the church office. Leaders under 30 may apply for the Young Leaders Bursary at [email protected].

Expect to be inspired, to worship together as one voice and body, to be equipped, to hear what God is doing among us, to participate in discernment and decision making and to see old friends and make new ones.

Keynote speaker, Nasser al’Qahtani, Multiply’s Regional Director of Middle East and North Africa, is a gifted Bible teacher and will focus on the Gospel of John. Coming out of an Islamic worldview, Nasser was captured by a vision of Jesus. Nasser relentlessly points others to the Way, the Truth and the Life in the Middle East, North Africa and wherever the Spirit of God leads.
