Sermon Intercessors

Prayer calls upon God to open hearts and minds of people to His Word as it is preached. Prayer calls upon God to fill the preacher with wisdom and power to declare the Word of God with boldness, clarity, and grace. We would like to have two people every Sunday in the prayer room during the sermon. If you are interested in being a part of this ministry, please fill out a Connect Card and write “Sermon Intercessor” on it.

  

Ways to Give Financially

Besides the offering taken during the morning service, there are four easy ways to give a financial donation. You can give in our church offering box located on the wall outside the sanctuary doors, online at our church website, mail it into our church office, or by texting your donation amount to 574-281-4998.
