Daily Prayer Guide
We are called to pray for each other daily, and MEFC provides opportunities to help you keep yourself organized and accountable! Pick up a physical Daily Prayer Guide from the pamphlet display in the foyer. Praying for one another is a priceless gift!
Let's celebrate one another! A monthly list of MEFC birthdays and anniversaries can also be found on the bulletin board in the foyer. Is your special day missing from our list? Contact Megan in the office so we can update your information!
