Prayer Meeting
On Tuesday, December 13, we will begin an in-person English-speaking and an in-person Spanish-speaking prayer meeting at the District 1 meeting hall, 1855 W. Ball Rd., at 7:30 p.m. The English-speaking saints will meet upstairs on the west side, and the Spanish-speaking saints will meet downstairs in room C101. The Chinese-speaking saints and the Korean-speaking saints will continue to pray as in previous weeks.

All the English-speaking and Spanish-speaking saints who pray on Zoom should join one meeting for their respective language. Zoom information can be found in the small group announcements.

New Year’s Eve Prayer
Because the December semiannual training will end at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 31, the church has decided not to have a prayer meeting on New Year’s Eve. If they are burdened to do so, the saints can pray with their family or in small groups.
