The 8-4-0 Prayer group

When we return to Sunday morning gatherings at our church building we'll also resume the gatherings of the 8:40 a.m. team that meets in our Memorial Room (on the building's upper level) for ten minutes to pray for our church and ministries, for area churches and their ministries, for a church chosen at random from across the country, for our communities, states, nation, and world, for individuals in need, and for whatever else in on our hearts. 


The 8-4-0 Prayer group was and again will be fast-paced and intentional outreach to God on behalf of the people and situations of our lives. When the time of reunion comes, you won't have to know how to pray; you'll just have to want to reach out to God. You won't have to say a word during one of the group's prayer meetings; you'll simply have to join your heart and spirit with ours as we cry out to God.


Watch this space and our website for details about the resumption of this prayer ministry (it WILL come back!) At that time we'll invite you to join us around our prayer table, and to submit prayer requests to our 8-4-0 prayer group - anonymously or with your name attached - by clicking THIS LINK. [Currently and until the 8-4-0 group resumes on July 12, we share submitted prayer requests in a weekly publication called "Sunday Session.]
