Parents Who Pray
Parents Who Pray is off to a great start this year! We have been praying for each of our CCS students to receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so they may know Jesus better, to have the eyes of their heart enlightened so they may know the hope to which He has called them, and to experience His incomparably great power (Ephesians 1:17-19). It is an awesome privilege to bring our students, families and school staff before the very throne of God. We would love to have you join us on Wednesday mornings from 8:30-9:30 am in the hospitality room in the US competition gymnasium. FOR PARENTS WHO NEED TO BRING A YOUNGER CHILD WITH YOU – there will be an US student available from 8:30-9:05 am to play with your child while you join us in prayer.
