NK Community National Day of Prayer Thursday, May 2 7-8:45 pm Gateway Fellowship

Next Thursday marks the 62nd National Day of Prayer.  People across America will be joining their hearts in prayer as they seek God’s guidance for our beloved country. One looks at the bleak forecast for the future of America and wonders, “What can I do?” The answer is:  We can pray! Humanly speaking, our situation is hopeless.  Man has chosen his own path in direct violation to Scripture and it will end in disaster.  However, God has not forsaken us.  He has provided a way. “If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land.”   II Chronicles 7:14 Please take the opportunity to repent for America and humbly seek God’s mercy for a nation gone astray. Members of the North Kitsap Community will be meeting in the Pearson Fellowship Hall at Gateway Fellowship to observe this special day.  Josh Hinman, West Sound director of Youth for Christ, will be speaking about the needs of youth and families.  The US Marine Corps will present the colors; musicians from North Kitsap Baptist Church will lead worship; local pastors will pray for the needs of our community and nation; participants will be invited to form small prayer circles; an offering will be taken for the NK Coffee Oasis ministry.  Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there! For more information about the National Day of Prayer, go to
