Brady bread com­ing to our church

Do you like home­made cin­na­mon raisin bread? Do you believe in jail min­istry? Do you believe in help­ing the home­less? If you answered yes to any of these ques­tions, then look for Brady bread com­ing to our church lat­er this fall. For $3 you can pur­chase a loaf of home­made cin­na­mon raisin bread and all the mon­ey helps inmates and their fam­i­lies in Ononda­ga Coun­ty Jus­tice cen­ter or ped­al for pos­si­bil­i­ties that helps home­less earn their bike, hel­met and a lock to pro­vide them with trans­porta­tion, exer­cise and com­mu­ni­ty.

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.
