PRAYER INSERT INFORMATION: Holding one another up in prayer is an integral part of our life together as disciples of Christ. If you have prayer requests that you would like to have included in the weekly insert, please contact Pastor Ervin, Pastor Bonnie, or Pastor Sarah by Thursday at noon to have those items added. Our practice is to leave requests in for three consecutive weeks or until the event or situation has happened or resolved, whichever comes first.
