The purpose of the Whitchurch-Stouffville Community Prayer Breakfast is to affirm the strong Christian roots and heritage of the Town of Whitchurch Stouffville and to be a voice of the community, along with many other voices that say we still hold true to this heritage and faith today. And further to demonstrate that the Christian Faith is real and valid and that the community is stronger and better because of the faith of it’s residents.
The Whitchurch-Stouffville Prayer Breakfast offers an opportunity, at least yearly for all members of the community, including those who may not worship regularly, to give thanks and worship our Lord and to pray for His guidance to all our politicians and political decisions at the Federal, Provincial and local level and to pray for our Emergency Services and others who help to keep our community strong, safe and loving.
Our Statement of Faith
The Whitchurch Stouffville Prayer Breakfast is part of the larger prayer breakfast movement from the national and provincial levels right on down to the local municipal level – all of which are distinctively Christian by nature. By distinctively Christian we mean first, that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to The Father except through Him (John 14:6); and second, the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.”John 14:6
