Help us cover our spring event in prayer!
For 30 days leading up to our event (March 7th to April 7th) we will pray a scripture based prayer. We invite you to join us!

Those who know Your name trust in You, for You LORD, have never forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:10 Father God, RFW-C trusts in You to supply all our needs for the coming year of providing shelter, discovery, healing and renewal for our residents. You promise never to forsake us. Father, supply abundantly for all our needs, monetarily, emotionally and spiritually. Amen.

To You who are able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to Your power that is at work within us Ephesians 3:20 ; we pray that we would receive a great quantity as well as quality of items for our silent auction.
