M.H.O.P. — Middletown House of Prayer
Every Tuesday and Friday evening, the focus is on worship and prayer as we gather in the small sanctuary with a desire for more of God and obedience to His Word. The time is 7:00PM to 10:00PM, but you can come whenever is convenient for you during those hours. (This is not a service.) Come with an open heart and an open mind, and worship God is Spirit and truth together, all the while lifting up our prayers so that the world may know Christ!
"America is at a crossroads and I believe we should take every opportunity to stand up for God and His Word." This a quote from Franklin Graham who is currently traveling to all 50 states to hold prayer rallies, to preach the gospel, and to challenge believers to take a stand and take action. He'll be urging Christians to vote, to live out their faith in every part of their lives, and to pray for our nation just as Nehemiah cried out to God. The prayer rally in Indianapolis will take place on Wednesday, October 5th at noon on the capital south lawn. For more information, check out www.decisionamericatour.com.

Tonight is 'movie night' at MCON. Join us in the small sanctuary for "Courageous."

Popcorn and soft drinks will also be available. Bring your family!
