Sma;; group prayer

First Hour Prayer
Mondays from 8-8:50 AM on Zoom

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
– Colossians 4:2

Join us Monday mornings — all are welcome and participation is open and flexible. We are a committed circle of members and non-members who begin the week by joining together in prayer for our church, community, nation, and world.

Prayer is more than asking God for things we need or hope for – He knows the desires of our hearts! When we come together with others to pray, our faith deepens, our trust in Him grows and we are drawn closer to God and to one another.

Questions? Or for the Zoom link, contact Elizabeth Rabinowitz directly or email

The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
– Philippians 4:5-7
