Friday Morning Prayer
Every Friday morning at 8:00 am, in the lobby of the Ad Building, we get together to pray for specific people and events. This week we are praying for Kyle and Stephanie Gladding. We will also remember the parents and families of our students. If you are on campus, we would love to have you join us. If not, please pray with us wherever you are. This will be our prayer focus during the coming week, as well.
This weekend, November 22-24, is Family Weekend. We welcome the parents and grandparents of our students, as well other family members! May you be blessed as you worship with us and join us for this fun weekend showcasing your students!
