As we continue to take a break from our summer Sunday worship services, we are encouraged that there have been opportunities for some members to connect with other churches in Ayer and let them know about Life Church. Those churches have been excited to have us in town and learn about us. Pray that we can build bridges with them for the gospel. Please continue to pray for our ongoing communication and search for an indoor space to worship in this fall. Thank you!

EVENTS & INFORMATION
July Prayer and Fasting
From Pastor Brad: I am asking each of you to consider making July a month of prayer and fasting. I would encourage you to fast for one meal each week in July. During the time you would normally eat, I encourage you to pray. I also encourage each of you to find a “prayer partner” and try to pray together once a week. Pray daily (or as often as you think of it) emphasizing the following three ministries.
Life Church: Pray that they are refreshed during the weeks that they join Faith Church for worship. Pray that as they begin services in August/September that many in the town of Ayer will hear and consider joining for worship. Pray for new families to join them – both strong believers and those that do not know the Lord. Pray that the location being looked at will work out as a place for regular meetings and worship.
VBC: From July 12 to 16 we hosted many young children who heard the gospel – maybe for the first time. Continue to pray for our campers that God will cause the seeds of the gospel that were sown to grow and bear fruit in their lives.
New senior pastor: Pastor Ryan Fields. Pray for the Fields family move as they pack up in Chicago and move to their new home in Ayer. Pray for them and all their good-byes and all their hellos. Pray for Pastor Ryan as begins his new responsibilities. Pray for Emily and the three girls in adjusting to their new location.
