  • "Sweet Hour of Prayer" - A service of worship, praise, intercession, and communion that meets each Thursday at 11:00 AM in the Sanctuary.
    "Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven." - James 5:13-15 (NIV)

Following scripture's teachings, hymns are sung, praises are shared, prayer needs are brought to the Lord, communion is administered, and, for those requesting it, there is laying on of hands, anointing with oil and prayer.
