PRAYER WARRIORS:  Meets every Sabbath Morning at 8:30 AM. 

"Pastor's Gems of Truth"

 "Christians Are God’s Helping Hands—
God’s promises to the obedient
are 'good tidings of great joy.'
They are gladdening to the humble, contrite soul.
The life of the true Christian
is radiant with the bright beams of the Sun of Righteousness.
If men and women would act as the Lord’s helping hand,
doing deeds of love and kindness,
uplifting the oppressed, rescuing those ready to perish,
the glory of the Lord would be their rereward....
They would call, and the Lord would answer,
'Here am I.'
They would turn to the One close beside them,
who has given them the promise,
'Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.'
—Manuscript Releases 16:73, 74 (1901)."
Daughters of God, page 102. By Ellen G. White.

“As We Gather

As we gather may Your Spirit work within us,
as we gather may we glorify Your Name.
Knowing well that as our hearts begin to worship,
we'll be blessed because we came,
we'll be blessed because we came.

“As We Come to You in Prayer

Now, Dear Lord, as we pray,
take our hearts and minds far away
From the press of the world all around,
To Your throne where grace does abound. 
May our lives be transformed by Your love,
May our souls be refreshed from above. 
At this moment, let people everywhere
Join us now as we come to You in prayer.

A-men, A-men, A - - - men.
