Pray for Wheaton
We offer two ways to intentionally pray for Wheaton. One is our parent prayer card, listing specific campus prayer items to guide parents' prayer through the month. Another opportunity is our parent winter prayer gatherings, hosted in the homes of Parent Council members through the winter. To see if a parent prayer gathering is meeting near you, view this year's schedule.
