Every 2nd Saturday we gather at 8am for a time of prayer then we head out to help someone in need. We do minor home repairs, landscaping, painting etc for someone less fortunate.

Connect Ladies

Connect Ladies meet once a month for a time of sharing, caring, and giving. Each month the ladies gather to share their experiences and testimonies. Some months they do craft projects such as making lap quilts for cancer patients, wall hangings, or other projects. Other gatherings are just a time to talk and pray for one another. Connect Ladies has also hosted Beth Moore simulcasts in the past and look forward to hosting others. Currently the ladies meet on the first Friday evening of the month at 7:00pm
