A Week of Prayer – Friday

Join us today at 1:30 pm as we take time to pray for us as a community, our leadership, and our pastoral search committee.

VERSES

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. – Colossians 2:6,7

WORSHIP

Praise God for His holiness, truth, omniscience (all-knowing-ness), perfection, and faithfulness.

Praise God for His rock solid faithfulness to Pineland, despite our wavering, inconsistent faithfulness to Him.

Thank God for meeting your needs and the needs of Pineland Baptist church

Thank God for other Jesus-worshipping, Gospel-preaching, people-loving churches in Burlington.
