Prayer Emphasis: Kindergarten – College-age Students

It’s so hard to believe that the summer is winding down and it’s time to get ready to head back to school. We want you to know that Capital is here to support, pray, and walk alongside you this school year – whether that be in a building, online or at home.  We also understand the importance of our church’s support of our students, educators and administrators. Knowing they have a church walking alongside them makes a huge difference to our students  – no matter what stage of school they are in – and educators alike. 

Join us on Wednesday, September 7 at 7pm in the Auditorium for a Back-to-School prayer and worship night! Kids K-12th grade can start the night checking into their regular rooms and will be brought over in the middle of service to be prayed over. 

Here are some scriptures to pray over our students this year:
