Looking for Inspiration ~ Plan to join 2,000 other CRC servants at Inspire 2017, August 3-5 in Detroit, Michigan.  This one-of-a-kind event is designed for people like you, who are actively serving their local congregations and communities.  Be nourished by meaningful worship, be challenged by great presenters, and explore new ministry tools.  Join us as we gather as CRC people to refresh, refocus and reimagine how our shared calling finds expression in our local communities and beyond.  Don’t miss this opportunity.  Register today at crcna.org/Inspire2017.

Pray for Inspire 2017 ~ Inspire 2017 is a conference to connect people from across the 1,000+ churches in the Christian Reformed Church for three days of worship, workshops, speakers and conversation.  As we plan and prepare for this event, happening August 3-5 in Detroit, Michigan, please join us in praying for the event and all who will attend.  This week, please pray for openness to God’s leading in all sessions.  Pray that all who attend Inspire 2017 will hear his voice in their lives, and that presenters will listen and obey as they prepare and lead sessions.  Pray that God will keep out al distractions, tension, fear and other things that keep us from hearing his voice.
