God is calling His church to pray and we are responding to His call! On Sunday October 6th, we launched into a 21 Day Season of focused, intentional prayer and fasting that coincides with our "Unstuck: Power to Move Forward" message series. Pastor Loren asked each of us to unite and commit to a specific amount of prayer time each day. If you missed the service, no worries-the message is posted above so you can get caught up and jump right in with us! Prayer is such an important part of our Christian lives. Let's access the power God has given us through prayer.

We'll be sending encouragements throughout the 21 days and are planning to post some FaceBook Live tips for prayer. On October 26th we will be coming together at the Dubuque campus for a Church-wide day of prayer.  The doors will be open from 7am til 7pm and we will be focusing on various topics throughout the day.  You are welcome to join us for as much of that time as you are willing and able to.

We encourage you to be listening to God to direct your prayers throughout this time. But we also wanted to provide specific topics for you to pray about so that we can be united in our efforts, but also in case you just need a starting point for your prayer time. As such, the following schedule of topics and related scripture is in no way meant to limit the scope of your prayer time, we would rather you let it serve as a point of inspiration.
