2020 Theme: Prayer
12-22-19 - The shepherds of our congregation have decided on a theme for the year 2020. Eastview Church of Christ will make 2020 a year of prayer (Luke 11:1). The elders have compiled a prayer booklet, suggesting different subjects to specifically pray over each week of the year. This is not intended as a prescription for daily prayer, but a supplement to direct us toward unity in our group prayers.
Along with this theme for 2020, the order of Sunday evening services will be changing. These changes will be put into place in 2 weeks, 1-5-20. We will begin by gathering in a circle to briefly study the week's prayer topic, then being led in one (or several) accompanying prayers. After this, our worship service will continue as in the past, with one fewer hymn.
Just as having our Bible studies in a circle have helped to unify us in mind, praying together in a circle can unify us in heart (1 Thess 5:17). Please continue to pray for one another (Jas 5:16). And let us look forward to making 2020 a fruitful year of prayer (Matt 6:5-13, Luke 11:2-4).
