April 10: NPUC Day of Prayer and Fasting

Now, more than ever, we have the opportunity to press together and collectively pray for our nation and our world in this time of global health crisis. Adventists from all six conferences in the North Pacific Union are invited to participate in a special day of prayer on Good Friday, April 10. It’s part of a larger prayer effort by our world church, the 100 Days of Prayer, March 27–July 4.
In addition to extra personal prayer focus, you’re invited to join a special Facebook Live prayer conference on April 10 from 6 to 8 pm, Pacific.

Stitched with Love & Prayers

Washington Conference members are sewing up a storm with making face masks! Thank you for sharing your talent!

One community partner, Debbi Saint, the coordinator of Congregational Health Ministries from CHI Franciscan, reports 7,000 masks have been donated so far toward a goal of 30,000.

Masks are still being accepted at medical facilities throughout the region (you’ll want to check with local requirements as there are some variants). In addition, we encourage you to make masks for you, your family, your neighbors, homeless shelters, food banks, nursing homes, local nonprofits, and fellow church members. Let's help protect each other!

Plus: Children's Ministry leaders have a challenge for you....!
