We are looking forward to our combined Chapels worship and fellowship this Sunday at Ikoma Chapel. It will be a blessing to be together again. There will be no worship service at Kyoto Chapel this Sunday.

Prayer meeting on Sunday afternoon (6/11)

We usually meet in the afternoon to pray on the fourth Sunday of the month, but this month we will be meeting today instead, starting around 2:15pm.

James 5:16 says “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective,” and James 4:2 says “You do not have because you do not ask.”

God has given us, His children, the great privilege of prayer. Let’s gather together and seek the Lord and ask Him, in faith, to do great things!
