During this sacred season, the Church around the world meditates on the sacrifice Jesus made to reconcile the world to God. Draw close to Christ, seeking HIs power and transformation for your life as we worship this morning.

Announcements & Reminders
Missionaries Robin & Yoko White serve as Global Partners missionaries in Japan. They recently wrote with an update…
Thank you for your prayers over the past months. Yoko just returned safely from a short visit to Japan, and our Partnership Development is progressing. We had a goal of reaching 60% of our Faith Promise goals by the end of February. And it looks like we have reached that target. Thank the Lord. Pray that we can continue to gain momentum, and reach 70% of our goals by the end of March.
These next several weeks are filled with appointments to share about our ministry vision with others. We will be at Kingswood University and then in Ontario for two weeks. Pray for protetction and health in our travels, good connections and new partnership commitments. As you probably know, the coronavirus situation in Japan is even more paralyzing that it has become here. This is effecting the church in that nation as well. But there is great cooperation with the government’s safety measures. And our partner denomination there has postponed its Annual Conference until June. Let us all pray for Japan and Canada, and all other nations, as we carefully continue through these unexpected times.
Thank you again for your prayers. We’re glad to have you on the team.
– Robin & Yoko White
