Thank you for praying for MetroGrace.
Updated July 1, 2019 



MetroGrace is working with Crossroads Community Church to develop gospel-centered, community-based churches in three urban neighborhoods – Bridesburg, Holmesburg and Wissinoming. 

This year, our MetroGrace churches plan to focus on Unity, Peace, Strength and Growth. We find encouragement from Acts 9:31 (NASB): “So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria enjoyed peace, being built up; and going on in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it continued to increase.”

Please pray for the funding needed to advance the gospel in the city. We are currently 30% under budget and really need your help. Please ask the Lord to increase offerings in 2019. Could he be speaking to you: or, to your organization or church, to help us? Thank you.


Praise the Lord for new community contacts. Please pray for conversions, baptisms and growth.

Praise the Lord for a developing congregation. Pray that each believer would discover and employ their gifts to serve the Lord.

Pray for a church-planting intern to move into the neighborhood, build relationships and grow as a shepherd.


Pray for Pastor Jim Brown as he continues to lead this congregation as well as the combined Crossroads Community Church initiative.

Pray for Mike Connor as he assists with pastoral ministry.

Praise the Lord for Kingdom Kids, a growing ministry to children and their parents. Pray for more staff to help with this important ministry.

Thank God for Thrive, our growing ministry to young teens. Pray for additional staff to enable expansion.

Praise the Lord for Bible Babes an outreach to women throughout Northeast Philadelphia.


Pray for Pastor Pete and Danielle Forshtay as they lead this growing congregation.

Praise the Lord, Pastor Pete passed his ordination exam! Thanks to all who prayed for him.

Pray that new folks will begin to attend as a result of the very well attended Easter Egg hunt in the park.

Pray for mature, qualified leaders to join our team in Wissinoming.

Praise the Lord for opportunities to reach out to the community during times of crisis. Please pray for safety in the neighborhood.

Pray for Pete and Danielle as they serve with the Wissinoming Civic Association to assist their neighbors.
