Interested in learning how to lead or co-lead Summer Services?

Traditionally, these have been less formal than our regular Friday night services. We’d like to begin the tradition of having a few of these services co-led by members who enjoy leading others in prayer. If you would like the opportunity to do this, please let us know.
