Prayer Ministry:

Building Project Prayer Requests:

As numbers firm up for the final costs, pray that we are able to lessen the gap in financing and that discussions with the Steinbach Credit Union are favourable.

Pray for the Building Committee as our Church enters into a formal construction agreement with Thomas Design Builders. This will involve decisions regarding sub trades and managing all aspects and costs of construction.

Pray for wisdom upon the Building Committee and Thomas Design as they fine tune/redesign the plans in an effort to meet the budget for the project.
