Praying Our Way to Pentecost
Half-Million Mobilization Prayer Journal
From now through Pentecost, Nazarenes across the USA/Canada region will join together in reading a Prayer Journal and listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit in response. We are praying for a great outpouring of God’s Spirit leading up to and including Pentecost Sunday (June 5, 2022).

Below are ways for you to use the Praying Our Way to Pentecost Prayer Journal on your phone or tablet.
  1. Search for “Half-Million Mobilization” on Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
  2. Set notifications in the app so you get a daily notification for each devotional.
  3. Create a login so you can save notes from your time in prayer.
You can also go to www.halfmillionmobilization.org for a web-based version of the prayer journal. 
 
Thank you for your commitment to seek God’s will for the Church of the Nazarene in USA/Canada.
 
What will the Spirit say to you during these 36 days? We want to know!

To that end, the USA/Canada Regional Office has provided a prayer response survey to capture what you hear the Spirit saying. You can find the link at www.usacanadaregion.org/pray
You're invited to join our Creation & Advocacy Committee
The Creation and Advocacy Committee is looking for new members. This group meets once a month on Zoom to discuss ways our church can be better stewards of the planet as well as advocate for equity for all people.

Some of the efforts they have organized in the past include:
  • Re-Adventing Christmas calendar & resources
  • Anti-Racism education series
  • Composting partnership with PLNU
  • Helen Prejean speaking event
  • Replacing disposable utensils for Wednesday night meals.
 
If you would like to help shape our church's impact on the planet and others, please contact Heather Hayes- Haigh at heathernh2@gmail.com
In Our Prayers...
