Christian Women Book Club to begin!

Intercessory Prayer Group
Come and join us in prayer!  A new prayer group is forming to pray for our church, our community, our world, our families, and whatever the Holy Spirit puts on our hearts.  This prayer group will meet at the Historic Site on Wednesday mornings at 8:30 am beginning Wednesday, April 15, 2015.  Archie Gentry will be leading this group.  All are invited to come and pray together.
