Prayer – One of the most powerful ways we support each other is through prayer.  Prayer requests may be made on the “Keeping in Touch” cards, phoned into the office, or sent to one of the pastors.  The requests are forwarded then to the pastors, the Prayer Circle, the women’s circles (through the Prayer Chain), and to other members via email.

There’s a chapel, hiking trails, and a disc golf course.  Take a picnic and enjoy the day.  Please pack out anything you bring and clean up after pets.  The Fredericksen Wilderness Park Disc Golf Course also has a Facebook page, and you can pick up a map at the church office.
