This week, January 13-January 19, remember to pray for:
• Confirmation Capstone; pray for our High School students as they delve into the foundations of faith, learn practical ways to follow Jesus everyday, and make their faith their own. Four Sunday gatherings and a weekend retreat are on the agenda. Team Leader is Pastor David White.
• MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers); pray for this ministry to moms of young children (infant-K) as they provide a time of fellowship and connection, with brunch on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays. Ministry Leaders are Angela Culver and Alison Thibaut.
• “Grands” Small Group; pray for this group of grandparents meeting to encourage one another to help their grandchildren follow Jesus. Ministry Leader is Christine Thompson.
• Celebrate Recovery; pray for this Christ-centered, 12-step program offering help with life issues such as alcoholism, overeating, codependency, sexual brokenness, or financial problems. Ask that the Thursday night gatherings would glorify Christ and bring the freedom He desires. Ministry Leader is Gary Rutherford.
• Honduras Mission Team; pray for the UALC mission team and the final preparations for their trip in February. Pray for team cohesiveness and servant hearts.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to do the work He loves to do, glorify the Lord Jesus among us.

Last week, January 6-January 12, remember to pray for:
• Small Groups; a small group is a disciple-making tool where people can know and be known, love and be loved, care and be cared for, and grow in Christ together. Ask God to help the team in a campaign now to form more groups. Ask for facilitators to step forward to lead. Team Leaders are Tammy Schuster at Lytham Road and Peggy Bronson at Mill Run.
• UALC Preschool and Kindergarten; pray for the Lord to prosper this ministry in the new year as they nurture the whole child in an environment based on Christian values. Pray the Spirit strengthens and guides the staff team. Director is Jodi Coleman.
• Women of the Word; pray for this ministry to women as they use Melissa Spoelstra's guide to study the book of Romans. Ask for many to grow as disciples of Christ through teaching, discussion and prayer. Ministry Leader is Christie Masheter.
• Retirement Home Ministry; pray for the servants who provide worship services and Bible studies to area retirement homes, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. Team Leader is Pastor Jeff Morlock.
• Medical Mission Team; pray for UALC’s medical mission team who will travel to Gambela, Ethiopia Jan. 15-25. Pray for safety, effectiveness in service, servant hearts, and joy in meeting another part of the Body of Christ.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to help us be more and more grateful for God’s loving kindness and mercy in dealing with us even when we’ve not been obedient.
