Many people like to begin their day with prayer. Prayer in the morning is good way to sidestep the distractions that come when people are struggling with issues in their lives. Come join us for inter-denominational friendship and fellowship in the back of the Dog & Pony Restaurant in their Private Dining Room. This event is open to all faiths and those individuals wanting to experience the power of common prayer. When we gather, there is power in our chorus that is lifted towards God. Morning Prayer is the best way to command the day and grow closer to each other and God.
