Prayer Stewardship! Through the month of July we will practice our stewardship of prayer - when we join the church we promise to support the church by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness. We talk about stewardship of time, talents, energy and finances, but we are also called to pray regularly for the church. Each day in of our prayer calendar invites us to pray and give thanks to God for a specific ministry. Please join in praying for our church community!
