Of course, as any faithful body of Christ, we believe in the power of prayer. We have a VERY active praying community that prays for all of Christ's church and beyond, and especially for special prayer requests that are brought to the attention of our family. If you have any prayer request, please don't hesitate to let us know what it is.
We are very blessed to have a very active music ministry which is led by Mrs. Roz Lynch. Her music abilities inspire and guide, but then she also encourages and works with many in our church family and beyond to share their music gifts to the glory of God.
