FOCUSED PRAYER
God, the Creator of the universe is concerned with every detail of our lives.  Each Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. at Family Church, a devoted prayer team gathers to focus on God and bring needs to Him. We would love for you and your family to join us! Thank you for joining with us to pray for these needs! 
·        Pray that people will recognize their need for salvation, repent, be baptized, and receive God’s Spirit.
·        Healing for Jeremy's father, Ray and Rose, Mila Kate, Tommy, and our friend and fellow church planter, Todd Gaddy
·        Salvation for friends and loved ones and friends we have not yet met in our community!
