CHURCH ON THE ROCK GLOBAL, Pitt Meadows. (Josh and Lisa Arrington,Lead Planters)

PRAY for the favor of the Lord as Josh and Jason set up meetings with several leaders in Pitt Meadows including the mayor and school administrators at the elementary and secondary schools. ASK for open doors and opportunities to have a positive impact on the community and to take the Gospel into some of the darkest places in Pitt Meadows. The city is still in the planning stages of building a brand new chapel in one of its newest subdivisions for weddings and a possible church to use on a weekly basis. They are also looking into possible groups or individuals to oversee the building so PRAY that the Lord would make it very clear if Church on the Rock is suppose to have a part in this. They are seeing new families come to the weekly services each of the past three weeks. ASK the Lord to continue to bring new families each week and relationships with families that do come regularly would strengthen. Many people in Pitt Meadows have been deeply hurt by "church" in the past so PRAY that they will have favor with the people as the name of Jesus is lifted up.
