SHOP's 6th Anniversary

It was on this day back in 2006 that we launched out with an idea and a whole lot of passion and began Sanctuary House of Prayer.  To be totally honest, we didn't really know what we were doing.  But, we were excited to give it a try and trust God with the results.  He had drawn us into a new way of thinking about life and ministry and His purposes on the earth and we just knew that this house of prayer was our part to play in it in this city.  There was a small group of us then and, although the numbers are higher now, we are still pretty small and hidden.  But, we have learned a few things, had our hearts softened and our paradigms rearranged and became even more convinced that daily worship and intercession was the wisest thing we could do in this hour of history.  It has been such an amazing journey and it leaves me very excited for the next 6 years.

Thank you, God!  It has been 6 amazing years.  I am thankful for being with such a great group of people who have given themselves to pursue you and your kingdom with energy and devotion. I am thankful for over 4000 hours of corporate worship and prayer.  I am thankful for your perfect leadership every step of the way. And I am thankful for your presence among us.  You are truly the reward in all that we do.

Due to some scheduling conflicts we are postponing our evening with Carlos Sarmiento from Orlando. My apologies to all for this. However, we are rescheduling for the next month or so. Details to follow. This Sunday will be a normal day at SHOP, with an extended ministry time at 7:30pm for all who want to receive more of the Lord. See you then.

Upcoming Event

On Sunday, February 5th, we are pleased to welcome Carlos Sarmiento to SHOP for the evening.  Carlos is the Director of Orlando House of Prayer in Orlando, Florida, and has been in this role since its inception in 2005.  At one time he was on staff at Benny Hinn's church in Orlando but God encountered him with a new direction and a house of prayer was born. He is a man of integrity and passion for the kingdom of God.  We are excited to have him with us!  He will be speaking and ministering to us beginning at 6pm on that day.  All are invited.

A group of us are sitting together at the Community Life Church on Talbot and Allan watching the Onething conference in KC via video webcast and we are loving it! The worship is engaging and the teaching is the message for this hour. Come and be part of it if you have time. Let Him stir your heart these next 4 days.

Equipping Sunday

We are going to take a break from our normal schedule of worship and prayer to sharpen our skills and implement some things that God has been highlighting recently. It begins at 3pm and ends at 7pm. This is mostly for those who are an active part of the community, although all are welcome to attend. We will be having an intercession set at 6pm for one hour as well.

The following week, November 6th, and for the rest of the month, we are going to focus our intercession sets on revival in our city. The teaching series will also be focused on the same theme. We believe that there is a significant move of God coming to Winnipeg and we want to be prepared in our hearts and minds for what He has for us.

As well, all the others sets in November will be focused on thankfulness. We have felt recently that it will be a needed and significant offering to the Lord to express gratitude for all that He has done in our midst. It will align our hearts with Him and be a fragrant offering before Him from our house of prayer.

Join with us!
