Opportunities During the Week

The FSBC Prayer Ministry Team

When –2nd & 4th Saturday mornings, 8:00 – 9:00 am in the chapel, Williams Hall

To request prayer: prayer@freemasonstreet.org

The FSBC Prayer Ministry Team was formed in December of 2014, with the aim of making prayer a priority through the transition process. We now recognize how important prayer is to our church, through every season.

All are invited to attend. These meetings have rotating leadership, so that we can share different methods of prayer with each other. We seek God on behalf of our church, its staff and lay leaders, as well as interceding for church members and the community. The team also includes an email prayer chain of members who commit to pray for requests received by email.

The Way of Forgiveness: On Tuesday evenings, beginning September 12, Angie and Bob Guffey will co-lead the 9-session small group study, The Way of Forgiveness, a stand-alone study from the “Companions in Christ” series.
