Breakfast for the Soul

UMW Prayer Buddies
posted 3/17/2017As part of the Year of Prayer Initiative, United Methodist Women will be praying for Christ Church’s leadership and staff members throughout 2017. It has been said that praying for a church is like filling a balloon with helium, the more it is filled, the more it will soar. We’re excited to see our church soar, benefiting from the encouragement and intercessory prayer from this group of dedicated women.
