is held every Tuesday in our Church at 7 PM. It begins with a period of praise and worship of God in song, followed by a time for listening to God’s Word as God speaks to us through Scriptures and prophesies.

Come and experience the Holy Spirit’s power … all are welcome ... come, and Encounter the Lord!
