The National Day of Prayer team is supportive and excited to host the event again this year. It is time to gather all those who are willing to help with the planning and implementation of the day. The way the event worked out last year was outstanding.

If you are interested in being a part of this team we are meeting for the first time on Wednesday Feb 19 at 3 pm in the Fellowship Hall. Pastor Jeff and Pastor Brewer will be in attendance.
 
Pray that a chairperson for the team would rise up, pray that the witness of all of us working together to organize this community prayer day would bless this community and lead people to Christ. See you there.

Secret Sisters in Prayer
 
Secret Sisters in Prayer is a one year gift of praying for another woman in our church.
We draw a name once a year. You commit to pray
for the sister whose name you draw and someone will draw your name
and pray for you.
It is first and foremost an offering of prayers to God for another.
Some women remember their Secret Sister on holidays or their birthday with a card or a gift.
There is a Secret Sister table in the narthex where we place our gifts/cards or you can anonymously mail them.
We do have winter visitors participate as well. Prayer can cover across the miles.
 
The Bible tells us in Luke 11:1
“One day Jesus was praying
in a certain place. When he finished,
one of his disciples said to him,
“Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
Prayer Walk 
Our prayer walk is designed to provide a place of solitude in the midst of God’s beauty.  We have used the prayer Jesus gave his disciples in Matthew 6:9-13, the Lord’s Prayer, as the focus for our prayer walk.
 
As you walk the path you will see signs with the verses of the Lord’s Prayer to stimulate your personal meditation. We hope it will be a time of meditation and reflection for you. The walk begins on the lower level on the east side by the church office. Benches are provided along the path as well as a drinking fountain (at stop #4). The Prayer Walk ends at the Heritage Garden. The entire walk is about one third of a mile if you return to the point where you begin.
 
In his book “Draw the Circle”, Mark Batterson calls us to draw a circle around what we want to pray for. This path provides the opportunity for us to circle our church in prayer. We invite you to join in this walk.
