  • Prayer Changes everything

    Prayer is an opportunity to spend time with God.  In John 15:15, Jesus says He no longer calls us his servants, but calls us His friends.  This is time set aside for friends to gather and pray together in a deeper relationship with Him. 

    This community group is open to anyone that needs time in prayer with others.  We meet twice a month on first and third Tuesdays of each month at 5:30 p.m.  We will share our concerns for our world, our local community, our church, our family and friends and for ourselves.  

    This is an open forum with no expectations.  It's just a time to share and pray together as people of faith in the power of prayer and the comforting knowledge that God listens to our prayers.

    Hosted by Gwen Wagner

    When: 1st and 3rd Tuesday every month – starting March 2nd

    Time: 5:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
