What if you could change the world – not just for today but for generations to come? At Moms in Prayer International, we believe that a mom can be the single greatest force for good in the lives of her children and the children around her. We believe that lives and whole communities are changed forever when moms gather together to pray to the only One who can change a human heart.

 

Join us at our meeting in the Sterling area! Martha Gemelli, the Regional Director of Moms in Prayer, will be speaking.

The Common Bond Quartet is a group of men who have committed their time and talents to using music to present the gospel of Jesus Christ. Their desire to serve God provides the foundation for their ministry. While they endeavor to encourage and uplift believers through word and song, their passion is to plant seeds in the hearts and minds of unbelievers as they seek to further the Kingdom.

 

During a concert, The Common Bond Quartet will be sure to have you not only smiling, tapping your toes and clapping your hands; but you will also likely be challenged and encouraged in your walk with Christ.

 

Worship led by The Common Bond Quartet will be an experience that we're sure will be a blessing long after the last note is sung!
