Session – Thank God for our Elders who love and serve the church. Pray for them as they gather for a retreat on 31 Oct to seek God’s direction in our worship, discipleship and mission in these times. May the Lord bless the work of their hands and may the effort and time they give to serve God be a blessing to many.
