Touchstone Prayer

The Touchstone Prayer Team meets on from 6-7 p.m. Tuesdays to pray for the needs of Touchstone and those of our constituents. We will not meet on Christmas Day or New Years Day, but let’s still remember each other in prayer on those days. To join us in person or submit a prayer request, contact us.  Please pray for the following:
