Every Tuesday at Noon: Meet to Worship & Pray Together

Every Tuesday at noon we will gather for 30 minutes in the church sanctuary. Everyone is welcome,  you do not need any special skills, you will not be asked to pray outloud or lead the prayer time.

Please join us any/every Tuesday as we meet together to pray and lift God’s name.  If you are unable to join us in person, a devotion and prayer list will be sent to those on our email list so you may pray when and where it works for you.

Do You Have a Prayer Request?

Pastor Cindy (712-336-3115) has three levels of prayer requests which are 1) the request is added to the prayer list that is emailed to the congregation, 2) the request is only for the Tuesday prayer group, and 3) the request is only for the pastor.  Remember that those whom we include on our prayer lists must give permission.
