Lydia's riverbank prayer service

Have you ever been to a satellite church? Perhaps you've attended a makeshift church in jail, the hospital, or on the battlefields of the Mid East.

Lydia had a satellite church just outside the city limits next to a river, and her congregation was primarily female. Lydia's story can be found in the book of Acts Ch. 16:16-40

One day the Apostle Paul was led to Philippi by the Holy Spirit, and he was pleased to meet Lydia and the other women praying at the river.
