Daily Prayer Points From Today Thru Easter

EASTER_CHANGES_op_720x540Like churches all around the globe we about to enter Holy Week. Here are the strategic things we are asking our local church to be praying for each day. Join us and/or come up with the things your church can pray for!

Saturday – Pray that the Easter Egg hunts, for each campus, may draw new families to the church.
Sunday – Praise the Lord this Palm Sunday that Jesus resolutely faced his death for us.
Monday – Pray for friends or family members you hope to invite to the Easter service.
Tuesday – Pray for the Children’s Ministry workers serving Easter morning.
Wednesday – Pray for Pastor Steve as he completes his message “It’s Friday Night but Sunday’s Coming.”
Thursday – Pray for the Worship Team and Choir as they rehearse for Sunday.
Friday – Pray that the Spirit of the Lord would be powerfully with us at our Good Friday services (Syosset and Manhasset, 6pm and 7:30pm).
Saturday – Pray that the Gospel message will be clearly delivered and that many will begin their journey of faith on Easter Sunday.
Easter Sunday Morning – Praise the Lord that Jesus is Risen; THIS CHANGES EVERTHING!

Christmas with the Mahaffys

We are enjoying having my Mom and Dad with us for Christmas this year. We enjoyed Christmas Eve service at Shelter Rock Church, then had payaya at our favorite Spanish restaurant, and went to watch a movie. Christmas day was spent at home. And the day after Christmas we went into NYC to watch the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes, followed by a walk up 5th Avenue, through Central Park, and a stop in Times Square.
