Church Opens Doors For Pre-Caucus Prayers

Joyce's - Living WaterSheldon, Iowa — People of faith in the Sheldon area have been taking time out to pray at a Sheldon church this week, for God’s guidance leading up to Monday’s Iowa Caucuses.  Living Water Church in Sheldon has opened their doors each afternoon this week from 5 until 6 pm to allow an interdenominational setting for people to gather and pray.

Barb Hibma, one of the organizers, says the idea came from a local ladies prayer group.

She says that the idea was to give people a quiet place to seek God’s guidance prior to the caucuses.

Hibma says the church setting will give people a chance to get away from all of life’s interruptions and spend time in prayer, asking for a Godly leader to be lifted up for our nation.

The church will be open each afternoon from 5 to 6 pm through Friday, January 29th.  Living Water Church is located on 2nd Avenue (Business 60) in Sheldon, 2 blocks south of the Highway 18 intersection.
