Are You Passionate for the Passion?

It is A.D. 2009 with Holy Week less than two weeks away. Are you feeling excited? Millions of Christians worldwide will recall the events from around A.D. 30 — the crucifixion, burial and resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ. Now, more than ever, in the midst of global crises, Christians will gather together to worship the Living God. Why? Because this God was willing to sacrifice Himself in order to rescue messed-up, selfish, hopeless people who are powerless in…

Day of Prayer

The next WHEN WE PRAY, Saturday, April 18, will be a little different!   There will be a shortened general time of prayer, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.  After that a Prayer Conference will be held (which includes lunch) and lasts until 2:15 p.m.  This event takes place at Chain-O-Lakes Community Bible church in Lake Villa.   Cost (for the conference) is $8 at the door.  The whole day will be worthwhile, but if your time is limited, plan to come…

Prayer for Sudan

Jonathan Hall, Director of Foursquare Missions sends this urgent prayer request to all the churches: “As a probable result of the arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court for Omar al-Bashir (the president of Sudan, who will likely stand trial for crimes against humanity and war crimes) many aid organizations are being expelled by the Sudanese government from Darfur and other locations in north and east Sudan. This will leave scores of men, women and children without food, medicine…

Men of Purity Weekend

All men of…
