Bring out the whole family; there are kids and youth Life Groups. Pre-school & nursery childcare is provided.

Jewels Praying Mommas
2nd and 4th Thursdays, 10 am

Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, “Don't be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, AND FIGHT FOR YOUR BROTHERS, YOUR SONS, YOUR DAUGHTERS, YOUR WIVES, AND YOUR HOMES!”
(Nehemiah 4:14 NLT)
Praying Mommas, it's your time to get together as a powerful prayer force for your family and the families of LOTWCC. There are those in the world that look like a praying mantis because of their “prayer like” posture but inwardly they are a “preying mantis” seeking whom they may devour. But we Praying Mommas say, 'No, devil! Hands off! Our kids are God's possession! Our children shall fulfill the plan of God for their life and bring glory and honor to their King, Jesus!”
Praying Mommas, join us every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. in the Garden Room to agree in prayer, plead the Blood of Jesus over our kids and see the salvation of the Lord in each precious life. Please enter through Children’s door “I.”
