Invi­ta­tion to pray

Prayer Part­ners invite you to be a part of the group that meets Mon­days at the church, from 3 to 4 p.m. Learn­ing how to call on God in prayer is one way that we devel­op our rela­tion­ship with God. We receive requests from many dif­fer­ent sources  and for many dif­fer­ent needs, such as heal­ing, com­fort, strength, wis­dom, pro­tec­tion, etc.  If you are inter­est­ed please call Pamela Phillips at 451‑1087 or Barb Hal­stead at 622‑0752.

Sup­port fos­ter chil­dren through Project Christi­na

The need is increas­ing because there are con­sis­tent num­bers of chil­dren that are removed from their home week­ly and big­ger sib­ling groups involved. Social work­ers use the toys to calm the chil­dren dur­ing the inter­view process which is extreme­ly trau­mat­ic. You can be assured that your gen­er­ous heart is mak­ing a dif­fer­ence.

Video On Demand- View and Share our Wor­ship

If you would like a copy of the video in DVD for­mat you may request one by fill­ing out one of the request cards in the pews and drop­ping it in the offer­ing plate. Let us know the date of the ser­vice you would like and whether you want the com­plete ser­vice or just the Pastor’s Med­i­ta­tion, and your name and phone num­ber of course, and we’ll have your video ready for pick­up in the church office with­in a week (or so).
