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.
  • Continue to pray for a solution for the drainage of the McGillivray property.
