PRAYER VINE UPDATE: Our church’s prayer group originally began in the church sanctuary after the service with five members praying for others whose names were in the Prayer Bowl. Postcards were mailed out letting them know we were praying for them. With Covid, this prayer group morphed into the Prayer Vine with prayer requests and prayers being texted between members. Those we pray for have given their permission and most importantly they know that others care and are praying for them. The current members are: Diana Myers, Sue Myers, Carol Barnhart, Beth March, Kathi Sterling, Jane Picking, Janie Montgomery, Ginny Weber and we welcome our newest member, Pastor Rick. If you would like to be a member of the Prayer Vine, have questions, or have a prayer request, just text Ginny Weber at 202-549-4358.
