SUNDAY Morning & Afternoon: 

Making "Community Connections" through Prayer:  We are taking a break until further notice.  This group normally meets 7:30-7:55AM every Sunday in the Conference Room.  When we begin to meet again, you are invited to drop in any Sunday and pray silently or from a prayer guide. God is powerful and mighty. He asks that we come to Him with our requests.  FYI all who worship and all who serve in worship service are prayed for as well.  - Pre-service Prayer Group
