Breakthrough Prayer in News

Today the Houston County News included an article about the upcoming Breakthrough Prayer events!

News Paper

The article, entitled “La Crescent United Methodist to host evangelism workshop” was written by Alex Graaff of the Houston County News.

In the article Graaff writes about the story of the executive director of OnSite International, Inc, Rob Griepentrog. Rob was with our church a few years ago. Since then he went on to serve through Keynote and Cru. More recently he has ventured out to create a non-profit called OnSite International, Inc. to share the gift of prayer in churches and schools and other organizations.

Prayer Workshop(s)

Saturday, October 15th- 8:00 am Prayer Breakfast at La Crescent United Methodist Church, followed by a brief prayer training on prayer walking and prayer mapping.  A 30-45 minute prayer walk will follow immediately into one or more of the neighborhoods in La Crescent.

Sunday, October 16th- OnSite prayer update and brief encouragement in prayer during the Dakota and LUMC church services.  Will also mention the prayer opportunities upcoming that week.

Following Potluck lunch at LUMC- Training on Prayer Evangelism. How to simply use prayer and a Bible as an opening to share the gospel with a friend or stranger.  Specially tabbed Bibles will be provided during this easy, hands-on training that’s been effectively used to lead many to Jesus Christ across Indiana, and other states in our nation!

Monday, October 17th- 6:30pm  An evening of praying for/with first responders, other churches, and others within the community.  We may travel to a local fire station to personally pray, on site, with first responders.

Tuesday, October 18th- 6:30pm  Prayer training on ways to pray Scripture.  Prayer can bring Scripture to life, and Scripture can also bring prayer to life!  During this training, we’ll open the Word of God to see a variety of ways David prayed through the Psalms, and also how New Testament writers prayed.  We’ll also discuss and practice praying Scripture back to God.

Wednesday, October 19th- 6:30pm  The Lord’s Prayer begins with a statement of worship, yet many Christians skip worship-based prayer during personal, and corporate, times of prayer.  We’ll observe the difference between prayers of thanksgiving and worship; discussing the differences between seeking God’s face versus His hand.

Please RSVP to the church at 507-895-2373 or Linda Thrune at 507-643-6320.

You’re invited to join any and all of these events. Check them out on the church calendar.


I'm writing and posting here as a volunteer of the church. My husband and children and I have been Methodists for over 100 years. We live, work, volunteer and raise our children in the La Crescent community. The people at La Crescent UMC do amazing things with their gifts and their talents. I'm very honored to be able to share them with the world. Thank you for reading along. Wonder what we'll get to read next!
