Let’s focus our prayers towards the West Coast and pray for Jeremy and Sarah Proemsey.
They are planting a new church in San Mateo, California, which is about 20 miles south of San Francisco. It’s just north of San José — many tech companies are based throughout this area.
Jeremy and Sarah call their new church Refuge Community Church. Members have been doing outreach in the city and also provide help to needy people. The church says they are not just IN the city, but they’re a church FOR the city.
Only about 10 percent of the people in the San Francisco area have connections to an evangelical church. But a whopping third of the people have no religious connection at all — many say they are atheists.
Jeremy says many people have not truly rejected God, but have rejected a false image of Him. They want to connect with people enough that the real truth of the gospel can touch lives.
Our church is helping support Jeremy and Sarah in this new church through our Cooperative Program giving.
Let’s pray the Lord will keep them and their three children in His Will.
