A district prayer calendar has been created for your use in praying for our district and related programs through the year. We invite you to include the following in your prayers in coming weeks:

Week of March 18: Pray this week for the Oakley Brick congregation, especially as it prepares for a pastoral transition later this year, and for the work of the denomination’s Discipleship Ministries office as it equips congregations across the country.

Week of March 25: During this Holy Week as we journey toward Easter, look around for signs of life in your community and praise God for those places of joy and growth.

Week of April 1: Pray for the Cerro Gordo congregation, and for the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria), now the largest national Church of the Brethren body in the world.

Week of April 8: Pray for the Woodland congregation in Astoria, and for the denomination’s youth Christian Citizenship Seminar taking place this week in Washington, D.C.

Week of April 15: Be in prayer for the district’s Ministry Leadership Development Team as it encourages current and future pastors, chaplains, and others who are called to lead the church, and for TRIM ministry training coordinator Mary Jessup. Also pray for the clergy retreat that MLDT will be coordinating in Rockford this week.
