Prayer and Connection
Just as God wants to enter into our lives and meet us where we are, so God desires for us to be connected to others in Christian community. Dwelling intentionally with God in prayer each day and connecting with others (at least virtually!) for community and support are more important now than ever. In addition to our Sunday schedule, access other resources for prayer and connection here.
