Sign up for the Prayer Chain!
In James 5:13-16, God calls us to pray for the hurting and sick and to uphold one another in prayer. One of the ways we do this as a congregation is through the prayer chain. Requests are called in and e-mails and calls go out to notify participants of the need for prayer. Those that sign up can choose to be notified by phone or e-mail. If you would like to be a part of this valuable ministry, please contact Joyce Magnusson.

Youth Group Help Needed!

And if you or someone you know hasn’t checked out our Youth Group yet, come join them! We meet every Wednesday night at 6 PM.
