This week, our high school students leave for a service week in Cleveland, Oh. Please be in prayer for our team and the work of advancing the gospel while we’re there. Here is a prayer guide for you to follow:
Friday and Saturday (July 24-25): Traveling from Mobile to Cleveland
- Pray for safety as we travel.
- Pray for the drivers of our church bus and church van.
- Pray for relationships to be formed/ strengthened on the church vehicles and while staying overnight in Kentucky. Pray for informal discipleship to occur.
- Pray for a gospel burden to be on the heart and mind of each team member.
- Pray for the souls of those that we will encounter on the road and in Cleveland.
- Pray that our students and adults spend time in God’s Word on this trip and the truth of the Word to shape our mission throughout the week.
Sunday (July 26): Worship at Gateway Heights and Cedar Point
- Pray that we represent North Mobile, and more importantly, Jesus Christ, well all week while in Cleveland (during travel, at church, throughout the community of Cleveland, and with our place of housing for the week – South Euclid Baptist Church).
- Pray that our partnership with Gateway Heights is strengthened as our team worships with Zach, Ben, and all of GHC.
- Pray for team members to have a continued focus as we enjoy our time at Cedar Point. Pray for our team’s boldness as they encounter many at the park.
- Pray for an even stronger concentration on the mission as we return from the park.
Monday – Wednesday (July 27-29): Main Work Days

Thursday (July 30): Traveling from Cleveland to Mobile
- Pray for our team to have greater appreciation for the work of Gateway Heights for the gospel in Cleveland. Pray that passion for the gospel in Cleveland translates to a passion/ willingness to be bold gospel witnesses in South Alabama.
