Prayer Meetings We meet will meet on the second Sunday evening at 6:00 pm, for a special time of prayer for our church, our community, and our country.
** Note** During COVID we will practice all applicable CDC guidelines We ask you to join us in corporate prayer that you would come and quiet your heart and mind by taking time to sit in solitude before the Lord.
