Prayer Meeting


Tomorrow evening we'll have
a mid-week prayer meeting
in the house of a family

We'll intercede specifically for those those affected by the earthquake in central Italy, many of whom have lost their relatives and homes! 
We'll also pray for the rescuers in action in these hours!





We'll pray for our church-family, committing to the Lord Nino & Stefania who are about to have their second child on Friday.

Well pray for Justin & Carli and their time visiting supporting churches in US and for the many new friends the Lord is giving to our church in these days!

Nowadays is traditional to have a BBQ,
so we decided to invite @ our home some new friends alongside church family.
Three families we got to know during the Exch@nge Camp are coming!
Pray for this Gospel Opportunity for Christians to naturally share their faith with these friends!

Enjoying Family Time & Celebrating with our Community!


Tomorrow for a local holiday we'll have a special time as church family.

We'll spend the day at a nearby water park where kids and adults will enjoy a nice and cool time playing together and having fun with the many water slides & waves swimming pools!

Then at 9.30 pm we'll join Budrio community for a bike ride by stars' light!
A professional astronomer will guide this bike ride where we'll enjoy watching the falling stars!

Pray for this opportunity to celebrate with our community and to celebrate the greatness of our Lord!

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
Psalm 8
