 We have exciting plans for our SWC families’ enjoyment, edification and growth in 2022.  Stay tuned for further notices.  



Our April family challenge is, "30 Days of Praying God's Word For Our Family".  Each day, read the corresponding scripture during your family worship (individual worship, if applicable). Then, call each of your family members by name as you pray a relevant prayer about the day's scripture.  Be intentional to keep whispering prayers for your family throughout the day all month long.  

As a bonus treat, journal your thoughts and prayers in the new journals gifted by the Personal Ministries Department.
