Calling ALL Prayer Warriors!

As some of you may or may not know, Renton is preparing to open it’s first ‘Totally Nude Strip Club’, as reported in the Renton Reporter. This club will be hiring and open to anyone 18 or older. Young women will be visually prostituting themselves to young and old, men and women. These are someone’s daughters, sisters and mothers.

Are you willing to make a stand?
Regardless of denomination, as one CHURCH, and believers in Jesus Christ, let us come together in agreement through prayer to rebuke this activity in Renton. Please gather your Pastors, prayer teams, neighbors, family and friends to come down and stand up against this ‘cancer’ coming to our city. Let us show by numbers that we want Renton to continue to be a respectable city for families of ALL ages to live in. If you would like to speak at the meeting, be early and review the guidelines on the next page to help you prepare. If the Council Chambers are too full for all of us, the rest of us can peacefully gather around the City Hall Building for a prayer walk around the building while they are meeting.

The Renton City Council will be meeting

7:00pm, Monday, March 22 at Renton City Hall
(1055 S. Grady Way, 7th Floor in Council Chambers)

to hold a public hearing to consider declaring a moratorium on the permitting of adult entertainment businesses for a period of six months and assess whether change or measured action is necessary to the existing ordinance. (which has not been revised for

the past 25 years).
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ~ Ephesians 6:12 KJV
