The Impact of Prayer
You have a direct impact on the lives of others through prayer. By joining the prayer chain you will be able to help others who are in need that may or may not have someone in their life to pray for them.

When you join the prayernet, you will receive emails with requests for prayer. At this time we average two requests per week. All you need to do is pray for that person in your own personal way. “And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for. 1 John 5:15.” If you would like to join, please email and let us know you are interested in joining.

Angels Among Us
There are times in life when we can be in a situation where a meal would be a blessing, such as after giving birth or when dealing with a medical situation. Through our Angels Among Us ministry, you can help people within our church by bringing them a meal. To join, send an email to letting us know you’d like to be part of this ministry. When a need arises, you will receive an email asking if you can sign up to bring a meal. If you are in a situation where you could be blessed by a meal, please email us at
Blessed: To be on the receiving end of the tangible and intangible favor of God.
I will position myself to receive God’s blessings.
1. I manage God’s resources as a steward.
“It is impossible to become a fully developed follower of Jesus without also becoming a fully developed steward of your resources.” -Randy Alcorn
2. I align my heart fully to God.
3. I lose God’s blessings when I rob Him.
4. I receive God’s blessings when I trust him.
