Prayer Guide: September 12 – 30, 2016

Our 2016-17 Bonus Verse:

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.  Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,  that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”                         Hebrews 4:15-16

Parents in Prayer – Please join us on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 a.m. after morning drop-off.  You are invited to join other parents every Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. to pray for our students, our teachers and staff.  This is a vital ministry that benefits all of us at ICS.  Parents meet in B201, at the end of the 8tgrade hallway.  Your child’s class and teachers will be prayed for specifically during the year.  Contact Mary Sue Smith in Reception for more information.  You are welcome to drop in when you can and especially when your child’s class is being featured!  Our ICS Prayer Guide is sent to every family via email, approximately every 3 weeks during the school year.  Please take advantage of this Prayer Guide and pray for the needs that are outlined there, even if you cannot come to Parents in Prayer each week.
