Together as a church and those that are apart of our church online will be joining together to PRAY IN THE NEW YEAR. December is such an important month for us as a church, because people are uniquely open to Jesus in the season of Christmas.

Below we are providing a daily list of specific prayers that we want you to pray through as we pray in the new year together.
