Morning Devotion
Each day, except Sunday, Pastor Jason shares a brief 4-7 minute scripture reading, reflection, response, and prayer. During the season of Lent, Pastor Jason is sharing the gospel of Mark, which will be read through by Easter. We encourage you to read this gospel. The associated devotion is posted to Prairie Avenue's Facebook page.
You may also access it on the church website: prairieavenuechristianchurch.org/daily-devotional. It is posted around 8:20 to 8:30 each morning.

June Outreach Project: Faith Comes By Hearing Vision 2033
Until June 30, any gift you give will be matched dollar for dollar, reaching twice the people with God's Word in audio.
Countless multitudes around the world have never heard God’s Word in their own language—if at all. Most could not read the Bible if a printed version were available. They need Scripture recordings in their own language.

This year, our prayerful goal is to record Audio Scriptures in 160 new languages and create 360 Gospel Films.

Every dollar you give toward our $350,000 Vision 2033 Matching Challenge today goes toward creating and sharing God’s Word with men, women, and children on every continent.

Your generous support for our "Noisy offering" is appreciated! We have collected $57.33 for this project.
