I want to challenge you once again to be a part of Renewed Sunday, this Sunday, March 31st. We will be joined again by Bill Elliff, the pastor of Summit Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. Last year, our Renewed Conference was a powerful catalyst for us to examine our own spiritual vitality and life of prayer. As an example, since last year we have reinvigorated a wonderful time of prayer each Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. in the worship center. Let me take this opportunity to encourage you again to attend this weekly time of prayer. This year Bill will be leading our morning service at 10:50 a.m., and a special evening service at 5:00 p.m. Please make every effort to attend and to invite your friends.

Also, please join me in prayer these next few days leading into Renewed Sunday. Pray in general for our ongoing need of brokenness for the lost in our communities. Pray for openness to repentance, restoration, and accountability in our relationships. Pray that we might have courage to carry out God’s vision for the future of Metropolitan. Pray that we might have love for, and a vision for the city of Wichita and our individual neighborhoods. Pray that we might have compassion on those in our communities dealing with tremendous struggles. Pray for a greater thirst for prayer. Pray for the presence of Jesus in our church.
