Parent Prayer Group

"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." Colossians 3:12-14

Fridays, 8:15-9:15 a.m., Flora Marbut Conference Room (lower level of Founders Hall Middle School building)
Please join us for Parent Prayer Group as we pray for the needs of our children, the needs of the Whitefield community, and praise God for the great things He has done in and for our community. All are welcome and come as you are! If you have any questions, please contact Byron Johnson.
