Prayer Warriors
We have added a new time slot for prayer for the church and VCI on Sunday mornings after the contemporary service. We meet at the kneelers in the great hall closest to the main doors. Look for Wanda Polk or Shirley Ledet. We continue to meet after the traditional service in room 20. These prayer times will be in effect for the next 12 months. Join us!
