This past Sunday, I mentioned that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and I reminded everyone that we should not only be praying for Bedford Road but also for the other congregations in our area. Some are large, and some are small – but all are Christs.
Here’s just a few of the local (and not quite local) congregations I think of and pray for often.

Bethany Covenant Church, Bedford
The Bridge, Milford
