Pray for Agape Fellowship in London as they gather this weekend for their final church service on July 14, 2024 at 4 p.m. at Valleyview Mennonite Church.  We thank God for almost 50 years of ministry in the London area.  Begun as a weekly Bible study in 1976, they developed into a house church model of weekly fellowship and worship with outreach in London’s inner city. Since 2005, Agape Fellowship has met at Valleyview Mennonite Church in London.  Pray for those who call Agape Fellowship their home as the close their congregation.  Thanks be to God.

Continue to pray for MyanmarUkraine, Russia, Israel, Palestine and throughout a world that cries for peace.  Pray for those who are displaced, those who search for family members, those who make decisions and those who attempt to provide aid. Lord, make us channels of your peace!
