Need Prayer?

We understand how hard this season has been and we’re praying for God’s guidance and wisdom in all of the choices we face in the weeks ahead.

Be Encouraged!

While we exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, we know that divine health and protection is from Jesus. Let’s continue to trust in His promises of protection in Psalm 91 for ourselves, our families, and all those who are affected by illness and pray that the virus will be contained and conquered.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.

Psalm 91:9-10 [NIV]
