Prayer Group/House Church Sign-Up

Three new house churches slash prayer groups are gearing up to start this week and next and you are invited to sign up for one of them. These groups are intended to assist us in making time for intentional attention to one another and to God through weekly time together in fellowship and prayer. What follows are the specific details, as yet known, bout the three new groups slash churches. You may sign up either on the sheet posted outside of Niehbur or by e-mailing me.  Keep in mind that by signing up you are committing to one hour each week in fellowship with the others in your group. At the time of your group's first gathering you will, together, decide the format of your time together.

  • Group One will meet on Tuesdays from 8pm-9pm. In the group so far are Kim Woodbury, Beth Tjoflat, and Rachel Duncan. This group can accept 5 more people.
  • Group Two will meet on Tuesdays from 7:30pm-8:30pm. In the group so far are Debbie Noonan and Howell Sasser. This group can accept 6 more people.

In addition to the groups mentioned above, two of you have expressed interest in a "shoreline" house church slash prayer group. If more of you are interested in such a thing (a group to meet on the other side of the bridge - you know who you are) please e-mail me and I will put you all in touch with one another.
