Together seeking a fresh movement of the Holy Spirit

Pastors Bob and Jake will be co-leading prayer meetings in the sanctuary. There is no particular agenda or plan for these meetings, other than to open ourselves to God and to seek a fresh movement of the Holy Spirit in our own lives and the life of the church.

No need to sign up, just show up. Every Wednesday (through November 14) at 6:30 p.m. in the main sanctuary. Contact Pastor Bob at [email protected] with questions.
