SUNDAY MORNING PRAYER
This Sunday, we will spend time in prayer together following the morning service.  We will once again broadcast the prayer service via our Facebook Live feed.  Our prayer topics will be available via the live feed as well.  Bill Newman will lead us in this guided prayer service through The Lord’s Prayer.

PRAYING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
This week we are asking you to pray for our youth in our church and community.  Middle and High School students have had the opportunity to return to in class instruction, so many of our students are back to a certain level of normalcy and are living amongst their peers and friends.  Pray our students live out their faith boldly as well as have opportunities to speak the Gospel in their day to day interactions.  Pray they will grow in their faith.  Pray for Pastor Stuart and the other leaders that are pouring into their lives.  We have been blessed with a wonderful group of young people in our church body, and we can’t wait to see how God will continue to bless their lives as they live out their faith.

BWBC YARD WORK CREW

Mark Scott (Preaching & New Testament Professor at Ozark Christian College) gives us a glimpse into Habakkuk’s job description—preparing God’s people for Babylonian captivity. Mark explains how we can maintain faith in God when the world seems to be falling apart. The key to this faith for the people entering captivity is the same for us today: to pray yet.
