Devote yourself to prayer being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2

Curious? Anxious? In need of a favor? Want to say thank you? God knows your heart and he knows your desire to pray. Our first prayer meeting was Ash Wednesday and we will continue to meet on Wednesdays at 2 PM in the church sanctuary. Anyone wishing to join us is welcome as I believe God wants all of us to be in close spiritual communion with others, especially those who will pray for us on our spiritual journey. Jesus tells us that the power of prayer is multiplied when we gather with even a few others to pray. I look forward to being with you.  Carole Harmon

Embodied Spirituality

Pastor Bo came to speak on the topic of Embodied Spirituality. Christ’s Ministry was always to provide holistic health treating the whole person physically, emotionally and spiritually. In essence care for the body, mind and spirit. In the programs Health Ministry has provided to date physical and emotional health have been the dimensions we have addressed. So we recognized that Spiritual dimension being central to achieving holistic care.
