Pray & Take Action

Epiphany is about the manifestation of Jesus Christ. This season focuses on Christ revealing His divinity and His saving plan for the nations, as the Light of the World invading darkness. As a part of Epiphany, we spend every January praying for and taking action on the issues of racial harmony, the sanctity of human life and the nations. We cry out to God on behalf of the voiceless, the unheard and the persecuted, and we support the organizations and ministries that advocate for them.

This year, we encourage you to take the time to pray through these topics individually and with your family and group. We also encourage you to consider how you might take action on these issues that are so near to the heart of God.
