The single best gift we can give our community is prayer. As the anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center approaches FUMC hopes to give that gift to Lubbock as we cover our community in prayer. Our goal is to have 100% of our members participating in some way.
Here is the Plan:
Prayer team sign-ups are going on now at the intersection in the Education wing. Each team will sign up with a corresponding school or agency - police station, fire station, city hall etc. On September 11 from 2 to 3 p.m. a brief training will be held at the church. After the training, teams will drive to their assigned area, pray, and place yard signs in surrounding areas that let the community know that we are praying for their school and surrounding neighborhood.
Here is what we need:
1. 40 Teams of 3 to 5 to adopt a school and surrounding neighborhood.
2. Commitment from those unable to go to be on a team to pray for our teams as they go.
3. 25 people to write letters thanking our Police, Firefighters, and Government Officials for the work they do and stating our commitment to pray for them.
4. Volunteers to assist with dinner following the teams return.
Please commit to be a part of this community wide ministry! For more information please call Shera Atkinson at 763 4607 ext. 240.
