1st Saturday of the Month Prayer Meeting
Let’s start the New Year with praying together. E. M. Bounds, a prayer warrior, once said, “What the church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use— men of prayer, men mighty in prayer.” Join us on January 8th at 9 a.m. in Grace Hall.
