For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:14-19

Global Prayer Night
First Monday of the month | 6:30–8pm | Grace Chapel

3. Join our Online Prayer Team
Every week, people worshiping with our church online reach out to pray with SBC. Whether through our prayer chat or over the SBC Prayer phone line, SBC wants to be there to encourage people and lift their requests to God. A great aspect of serving in this ministry is that the prayers come directly to your phone or computer. If you are available to pray, you can respond. If not, you can know the rest of the team is getting the same request and will respond soon. To learn more about how you can pray with others in need of support, please email Pastor Ryan Hubner at email@example.com.
