Church Wide Announcements

  • Prayer Chain: Let's begin 2021 going to our Father faithful in prayer together throughout January. In Romans 12:11-12 we are called to "Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." If each of us would select 4-5 different half-hour slots the month will be covered with 24/7 prayer! You may want to sign up for some of those times as a couple, together as a family or as roommates. Or consider using one of those times to pray with your best friend and/or as a discipleship group or small group. The possibilities are endless and so are the things God wants to do on behalf of his people. Click this link to sign up: PRAYER SIGN UP

Care & Compassion:

  • 2020 Victory Report: The Care and Compassion Ministry would like to thank you for the opportunities we have had this year to partner with the church in serving our brothers and sisters. We are grateful for the support we have received from our leaders and our core C&CM team to help "stand in the gap". 2 Corinthians 1:4 - He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. We would like to share our year-end report to all who would like to see some of the ways our church has much to be grateful for this year!
