Seeking to become disciples transformed by the gospel to make disciples
MONTHLY PRAYER MEETING
"If we don’t pray together to God, we’re not going to make it because of all we are facing." (Prayer Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God, Tim Keller). We are starting our monthly prayer meetings. We changed our prayer meeting to Sundays. Our next prayer meeting will be held Tuesday, December 3 (7:30PM-8:30PM) by video conference. Devotionals will be shared by various leaders of the church. Let's pray!
