Open Circle MCC: The Villages, Florida

Prayer Changes Things

Open Circle MCC is a praying church. We all pray in different ways—some of us pray daily, some of us lift people who need prayer up for healing and positive light, some of us meditate—but most of us pray. We take caring for each other and for those who are important to you very seriously.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Phillipians 4:6-7
