Nursery - the handshake of the church

Pray for our Church Leaders

Our church leaders need our prayers; their roles put them in the thick of a very real spiritual battle. Will you join a team committed to praying for them? 
You would be assigned a different leader every month. No meetings. You just receive a monthly email with your assigned leader and optional prayer suggestions. Interested? Contact Jen Kraker or the church office.
