We had our prayer walk as a church Saturday, May 18th.
We had 20 people take part in the walk.
Pastor Toby gave a challenge from Acts 2 about how the church must be built on the foundation of prayer. We, as a body of believers, must cover the community, people, church and lives with prayer as it is at the core of all we do.
We split up into 4 groups and went around Washington Park Neighborhood and prayed for the people who lived there.
“It was very encouraging to see people coming out and praying for the community that we are going to love and serve. We believe that prayer is the foundation of all church plants, and it is of this one, too. The more we can be over there and pray and be a part of the community, the better.”- Pastor Toby
It was an awesome feeling to be in the middle of the neighborhood and just see the people and neighborhood that God is calling us to as a body of believers. We prayed that God would make it clear to us, how He is working and how we can join His work there.
The walk ended at a possible meeting location for the church. We gathered together as a group, held hands as one body, united together, and prayed over the location. We are trusting God fully to provide the perfect meeting place for us to be able to meet near the people and the park. Pastor Toby talked about the location and shared his heart on where God is leading.
“It was great for our people to see the area and see that God is working. We are seeking God’s direction and looking for how we can jump on board with what He is already doing over there. We have to be in the community and focused on prayer to see that.”- Pastor Toby
City Park Church is being built on prayer — and not buildings, programs, or personalities.
Another update will be coming soon as we have our first Discipleship training Thursday, June 6th.
