June 10-30, 2011 SW Wisc Events – well some of them anyway

Some things going on around the area in June 2011.
Stay tuned for updates here.

CityPrayz – Friday, June 10th, 2011 will be the final regular monthly CityPrayz in LaCrosse.  Free admission.  Everyone is welcome.  Doors open at 6:30 pm.

It has been a joy throughout these years of ministry together to see how God’s people have risen up together from different faith backgrounds in worship and service reaching out to our city and the surrounding communities for Christ. One day we will find out all the lives that have been impacted and are now part of the family of Christ. It is because of your prayer and labor of love that souls have been added to the Kingdom.

From the CityPrayz team and Matt & Sherry McPherson, we want to say thank you all… for gathering together for blessed times of worship to our great God and King…as well as the love shown in prayers for our City, the lost, hurting and hungry.

We urge you to use this last CityPrayz as an opportunity to bring your friends and family members that need Christ, and we know you will join us in prayer that God will do a mighty work during this last night of worship together. A reminder…we will be having the CityPrayz choir join us as well as world renown violinist David Davidson.

Our hope is that CityPrayz will continue to be a spark in the La Crosse and surrounding areas for God’s people to rise up together in worship, service and unity.

Luke 10:2 tells us: “He told them, the harvest is great, but the workers are few. Pray to the Lord to send out workers into his harvest fields.” Our prayer is just that.   http://cityprayz.com/
