Foundation Communities, Capital Studios Blessing!
This SUNDAY, May 4th, you are invited to write a prayer, blessing, or word for our neighbors who will live across the street at 11th & Trinity. This past Advent we raised over $33,000 to help furnishCapital Studios. Because of the amount FBC raised, Foundation Communities has invited us to come pray over and bless their new property at 11th & Trinity.
During the First Sunday event (9:30am-10:50am), while you are listening to the Stapletones and enjoying breakfast tacos, visit the table set up by the Missions' Committee in order to write a blessing to be placed in the structure of Capital Studios. After worship, a small group of people will walk over to Capital Studios to place your written prayers into the framework of the building.
This is a creative way to continue to develop our relationship and ministry to these new neighbors before they move in! You've already blessed them by raising money to furnish their home, now come inscribe a blessing into their lives!
