    • “Worship Night In America”

      An Evening of Unity and Prayer for our Country

      Comments from attendees;

       ...Kim 'Worship Night in America was wonderful!! The thought that all over America at the very same time people were on their knees in prayer for our country and each other was amazing and powerful! As we each vote I pray that we remember that God is in control and He is ultimately our leader.
      ...Emilie  "Amen"
      ...Glenda  "Awesome event! Thankful we were blessed to have it in Hemphill at our church."
      ...Cloye  "I agree . I felt like we were one in prayer for our country and each other. So glad we were blessed with having this event in our church."
      ...Gail  "Thanks to our church for giving us the opportunity to attend this event. It was awesome!!"
      ...Mindy  "I loved it!!"
      ...Amber  "My family loved it and felt so blessed..
