• Love on Wheels - Many of our senior ladies have appointments with their doctors, dentists or other commitments and need someone to drive them. That’s where love is expressed and wheels put to it.

• Moms in Prayer – Groups of two or more moms (or grandmothers) meet for one hour a week to pray for their children and school. Moms experience how to replace anxiety and fear with peace and joy by praying specifically and scripturally for their kids. Contact Susan Hill at 932-0882.
