The people who gather here in prayer seek to live lives of love and hope amidst all kinds of circumstances. We boldly claim the congregational mission of sustaining and encouraging persons and families in their faith and wider life.
We ask God’s graces in furthering his mission among us to restore, sustain and encourage. We are richly blessed with people and their many gifts, with history, hope, and awareness of God’s presence for us now.
