Weekly Prayer Time

Join us on Wednesdays from 12 - 12:30 pm for a time of prayer for God's anointing on Awaken Church as we do all that we can to fulfill the Great Commission.

Join us and others in the community for an evening with Dr. Marc Newman to learn how You Can Make A Case for LIFE.  Dr. Newman is president of Speaker For Life, a training firm dedicated to equipping people to speak to those they influence about LIFE. 

A light dinner will be served at 5:30PM.
