First Friday Fun Nights


First Friday Fun Night - Movie Night!  February 1, 2019.  Time: 6 - 7 note early start time


Prayer Room

January - January is upon us and the winter cold makes us shiver, while the snow of Christmas has lost its enchantment. Do not be discouraged, instead build a snowman to refresh your soul. The white snow reminds us of the purity God's grace brings, and the three circles symbolize God's everlasting love. The pieces of coal for the eyes represent God's almighty power, and the carrot nose reminds us that God will always meet our needs. The scarf symbolizes God's tender care, and the hat reminds us to keep faith in God a priority. Lastly, the outstretched arms welcome you to draw close to God daily. Please enjoy the warmth of the Prayer Room this January, then find someone to join you outdoors to build a snowman remembering our Heavenly Father who loves us so much.
