7 Days of Prayer – Sept. 13-19

The pandemic of 2020-21 caused our church to adopt to situations and circumstances that were necessary, but sometimes outside our comfort zones. This is a critical time in the life of all the churches, and ours is no exception. In preparation for the “new normal” and to encourage our people to grow in discipleship, Session is calling for a season of prayer to listen to the voice of our Lord and beseech him to bring us together in one body.
