August Week of Prayer

The beginning of the year is not the only time that we can press the restart button, start fresh with the Lord, and seek Him for what’s next. The end of summer is also a time for us to pause and rest in His presence before the busy fall semester.

During the week of August 6-13, our church family will come together for a week of prayer that includes worship nights and a morning prayer session. We invite you to join us during this week, unified and expectant as we worship Him together. This is a great opportunity to set aside time to ask the Lord specifically for what He has in store for the rest of the year for you and your family.
