PRAY

We believe that God hears us when we pray and that He can do more than we can ask or imagine. Check out how you can pray with the Church throughout Costa Mesa and Orange County.

Trellis Prayer Army
Join the Trellis Costa Mesa Prayer Army to pray with Christians in our city, working toward establishing a 24/7 house of prayer in Costa Mesa!
