power of prayer

     The Power of Prayer chain

A team of church members committed to prayer has formed and is growing. If you have a prayer request, please email Linda (link), who will be circulating prayer requests, confidentially, to the payer chain team in the evening of every day.

In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 6–7
