Atholton Church – a House of Prayer

Atholton Church truly is a house of prayer. We believe prayer holds the key to unlock the power of God in our lives. Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend. It does not bring God down to us, but brings us up to Him. We invite anyone to join us in prayer through these opportunities:

Prayer Requests
