Drive Thru Prayer is Growing!  
Please continue to lift up the Drive
Thru Prayer Ministry.  We see God's hand at work with this ministry. On Tuesday morning, 18 cars stopped by, up from our first event where 5 cars came for prayer. Such a positive experience for all involved! One person was so moved by the Holy Spirit that she turned around at Lowe's and came back to the church for prayer. Several attendees couldn't turn in at the first entrance, but turned at the light and came back through the parking lot to make sure they didn't miss the prayer opportunity. Still another person shared that she wasn't able to stop last month, but she prayed in her car and then felt led to pray with a co-worker when she arrived at her office. God is certainly at work! 

Drive Thru Prayer: Tuesday, June 12 (Just for June - 2nd Tuesday of the month so it will not conflict with VBS) 7:00-8:00 am, SGPC Parking Lot. Join together as we love and support community members in need of prayer. We will need prayer warriors, enthusiastic sign holders and traffic directors. To Volunteer, contact Loretta Gobbel at 319-4608 or Pete Eckert at 608-9835 or email missions@saxegotha.org.

The Church Office will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day.
