Weekly Prayer

We invite women to join hearts and minds together in prayer for our church, schools, nation, leaders and many more needs! Whether we pray alone silently or out loud with a group we will be united in Spirit! The weekly prayer will be updated on Wednesdays. 

Heavenly Father, we lift up those who have been affected by Hurricane Ida. Many who are hurting do not know You and do not have hope. Help us to care for our neighbors' physical needs, but also help us shine Your light into the dark world and provide hope. In the name of Jesus. Amen

EnJOY the Word

Being in the Word every day is a critical part of our relationship with Jesus. But spending time with Scripture can also be fun! Visit this page for faith-filled crossword puzzles, word searches, fun facts and tips for falling in love with your Bible! Learn to enJOY the Word!

This week try a Word Study to help you go deeper in Scripture. One method is to simply read Scripture and see what word stands out in your mind. Then reflect on that word. Look up the definition. Find the word in the original language and see its original meaning. See where else that word is used in Scripture. Consider writing down 3-5 versus that all contain your word. We know God speaks through His Word and Word Studies can help reveal new messages!
