Marion Church of Christ is supporting Samaritan's Purse and Operation Christmas Child again this October.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organisation.

We continue to pray for the people who are having to daily deal with COVID. We ask for Your hand to be over the researches and testers of the vaccines. Lord God we ask for your healing, and grace for these people.
Loving Father, we thank You that You know every decision we need to make and every challenge we face. Please forgive us for the times that we try to figure out life on our own. We recognise that we need You. We need Your Holy Spirit to give us strength, wisdom and direction.
Lord, in our happy moments we praise You.
In our difficult moments, we seek You.
In our quiet moments, we worship You.
In our painful moments, we trust You.
