Federal Way unifies in prayer

“Unity in Prayer” service raises $10,000 for Multi-Service Center.

Local churches gathered for a “Unity in Prayer” service on Feb. 13 at the Performing Arts and Event Center.

Worship leaders from area churches guided attendees in songs of worship, prayer and times of sharing. Prayers for the city’s leaders — including Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell — culminated in a free will offering that gathered over $10,000. The funds were presented to Ferrell to give to the Multi-Service Center.

Pastors at Northwest Foursquare Church in Federal Way spearheaded the event geared towards unifying people across the region in prayer.

Participating churches included Grace Church (Federal Way), Northwest Church (Federal Way), The Edge Church (Edgewood), LifeSpring Church (Milton), One Hope Church (Federal Way), Integrity Life Church (Federal Way), International House of Prayer (Federal Way) and others.
