Our October Prayer & Scripture
During the month of October we are going to be praying for our leaders: locally, provincially, and federally.
Use the following passages of scripture to guide your time in prayer.
for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
1 Timothy 2:2
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.
If you would like to engage with the scriptures and learn more about the prophets as we talk about them on Sundays we will provide a series reading plan to guide you along.
Here’s a headstart for next week: Read Joel 2
Have you ever read any of the prophetic books and gotten confused?
Check out this short video for some info on how to read the prophets.

One Sunday, while Jesse was worshipping at church, he felt God giving him a sudden strange insight. Often buying and selling equipment, Jessie was suddenly inspired by a new weird way to structure a deal with someone he had just connected with on Kijiji. This is crazy, Jesse thought. I never met this guy, but this deal will actually work to this man’s benefit and help him make even more money. If I tell him this deal, he’s going to think I’m nuts.
The next day, Jesse told the man about the strange deal. “I said take this for what it is,” said Jesse. “And because it was in the man’s benefit, it broke down the wall of distrust.” The man started crying over the phone. Jesse learned about how the man’s wife and kids had left him. “He had everything and now he’s just broken,” said Jesse. The man told Jesse that he felt strange about telling him all these personal things about his life. “I don’t know,” he said, “but I just trust you.”
The next day Jesse went out to meet him at his home. It was a large house with a water fountain out in the front. “He had all the things you could want in the world, but his whole life was falling apart. We had a two-hour-long conversation. I got to pray over him and give him lots of advice. He was just weeping and being touched by the Father. It was so beautiful.”
Jesse believes that once we get to this place with the Holy Spirit leading, the church building just becomes a place to learn and encourage each other. “But the real heart of Jesus is outside the four walls of a church, for the broken and the lost,” he says, adding that we need to get more real with each other, as a church, about our own hurts and hang-ups so we can be healed. “As we’re letting Him fix us, we can live our lives in the Spirit – no longer broken – and truly impact the people around us,” says Jesse. “The outpouring is just the Holy Spirit and that’s what changes people.”

This couple believes we should encourage each other and the world, as a church, using special insights from the Holy Spirit as we draw into a deeper relationship with God.

As we get ready for what God has in store for Red Deer and Central Alberta we respond through giving to the expansion of our building. A special offering will be taken on October 27th during all three services.
Visit us at the table in the foyer after the services to ask questions, get a copy of the Get Ready package or check out the virtual tour of the new phases.
You can also give online or using the special Building Offering envelopes that are available in your seat holders at any time leading up to the 27th.
The work continues
This week will include a lot of electrical, heating and cooling system installation leading to drywall soon after. The “Triangle” in the foyer will continue to open each Sunday for worship and fellowship.
We are awaiting test results on the new well - the water appears to be higher quality than our original well. This will be a huge blessing!
Things are coming along on schedule and under budget, which is a huge answer to prayer. Thank you for your patience and support.
