Featured Church/Mission: Christ the Redeemer Presbyterian Church (profile), Portland, Maine (Pastor Doug Warren)

Please join us in praising God for these answered prayers:

1. Even though we were not able to purchase the building we were looking at, we did see God raise up $100,000 towards purchasing a property. Praise Him for this abundant provision.

2. We have had several families start worshipping with us on a regular basis and have seen a couple of them join in the past few months.

Please continue to boldly ask God for the following:

1. That God would give us greater boldness in inviting friends, neighbors, and co-workers to services, bible studies, and into our lives.

2. That God would tenderly comfort some who are struggling greatly at this time.

3. That we would experience the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace in our midst.
