If you have a prayer request that you would like the church to take before The Lord, or if you have a life or Bible question or life situation that you would like assistance from our Pastor with, please Contact Pastor Doug Theobald Please remember that we are a Bible based church, and we will not take things before the Lord that are contrary to the teachings of the Bible. (In other words, if you want us to pray for someone to get away with murder or any similar requests, you're out of luck) However, if you have a difficult situation that you need God's help with, if you are ill, or someone you love has a serious illness, or if you simply feel that you need God's guidance on something, then we will be happy to pray for you as a church. Please remember that this is not a forum for religious debate.
