Protection and guarding against discontentment, division, discouragement and discord. Staffing Budgeting for 2012-2013 Baptism Ministry: That the Lord will provide creative options for us to baptize adults at our current gathering spots or move us into a more permanent home. Also, that the Lord will stir up the hearts of those who need to take this next step in their faith. Couples Ministry: That the Lord would prepare dating and engaged couples to take the next series of classes to prepare for marriage.
