Come Along on Our Prayer Journey

Immense power of group prayer with shining light

A group of prayer warriors has been formed to pray for the needs of congregation members and friends. The group meets at 11 a.m. on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month in the church.

IF YOU are not attending, YOU are missing a great opportunity that we all should take to receive a blessing and to be a blessing to others. Please don’t miss out!

Come learn and become more comfortable with praying aloud for others.

To submit prayer requests, write your request on one of the cards near the wooden box in the narthex and place it in the slot on top. You may sign your name or remain anonymous. Merlin Fields leads the prayer journey.
