PRAYER WALL:

Check out our prayer wall in the foyer! How it works: simply take a piece of paper, fill out your request, then using a mini-clothespin, clip it on the vine. We also encourage you to take a prayer request off the wall, look at it, spend a few minutes praying over it, and then place it back on the vine. Or, if you want to take it with you and commit to praying over it for a week or so, you are more than welcome. You can also come into the church during office hours and pray over the requests on the wall.
