Women in Prayer.jpg

WOMEN IN PRAYER

Prayer develops our relationship with God. If we never speak to the people we know, the relationship will quickly deteriorate. It is the same way with God. Prayer - talking with God - helps us grow closer and become more intimately connected to Him.  This group offers an opportunity to gather in His name and grow closer through prayer. Whether you want to pray for others, are in need of personal prayer or want to share a praise for answered prayer, join us whenever you can. No need to register. For women only.
