Join us every Monday evening at 7pm in St. Paul’s cry room (inside the sanctuary) for our community prayer group. Bring your own prayer requests or pray for others. We welcome all members of the community for an hour of prayer and reflection. To submit a prayer request you can fill out a card in the pews and leave it in the offering plate, or contact Jean Luebke at jcluebke@yahoo.com, or one of the pastors. Mark your request public or private. Public requests will be shared with the congregation on Sunday mornings, private requests will stay between the pastors and the prayer circle.
