PRAYER WALL NEWS

During Lent Cross of Hope members will be constructing a 3 x 4 prayer wall out of small pieces of wood.  We would like to invite COH members to contribute scraps of wood that may have some personal significance, such as a table leg, a picture frame, or something from the woodshop. You may drop your contributions off at any time in the box outside the office door.  We will keep you posted with pictures as the creative process goes forward.

MONDAY PRAYER CONVERSATIONS

“Prayer, Does It Make Any Difference,” will be the topic of conversation on Monday evenings during Lent, beginning on February 22 at 7 pm..  The discussion will center around a DVD presentation each week by Philip Yancey.  Pastor Galen will lead the conversation.  Four 90 page participant’s guides are available in the office for $6.00 each.  Please call to reserve your copy. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out next week.
