God’s love to people who have never known Him.
Each Sunday a team meets to pray between 9:40-9:50 a.m.
for the Holy Spirit to move through our church during worship,
as well as for the concerns of our missionaries as they spread
the gospel. If you have a prayer request that the team can pray
over at that time and throughout the week, please fill out one
