     Someone has said that if Christians really understood to full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless.  Did you know that during World War II there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every day at the prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace?
There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America.  If you would like to participate, every evening at 9:00 pm, stop what you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our troops, our citizens and for a return to a Godly nation.  PLease pass this along to your prayerful family and friends.  Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.
     Sunday night, February 10th the congregation is invited to enjoy coffee and cookies with the Hometown Kids and Refuge Students in the Family Life Center following the evening worship service.
