Great Prayers: Teach Me
The enthusiasm for our 2018 vision has been overwhelming, and people are excited about being in Gods word and better steering their prayer lives. This Sunday we are going to look at the Lords Prayer, specifically the prayer that Jesus taught when the disciples asked..."Teach Us to Pray"! Its always been interesting to me what the disciples didn't ask Jesus to teach them. They didn't ask him to teach them to heal, or speak in tongues, or cast out demons, or any of the other supernatural cool stuff Jesus was doing every day in their midst. They asked him, to teach them to pray. I have always believed that its not "how" we pray, or "what" we pray, that matters as much as "why" we pray. In the church it always boils down to "why" we do anything. Intentionality about Jesus is always the answer to the "why" questions of our faith. Join us Sunday as we begin walking through the great examples of prayers that we can apply immediately to our everyday life. If you did not get a Bible reading/prayer journal Sunday you can pick one up this Sunday.
 
Attendance at 9:45-This is always the time of year when our friends and community neighbors visit to see if Georgianna is a good fit for them. Our middle service was standing room only Sunday which is always a blessing. However, I am hoping some of our folks who do not have children in children's ministry can peal off into either the 8:15 or 11:15 service for the next month or so as we make room for these new families to explore Jesus with us. I am super grateful for the many of you who already park at Provost and walk up the hill. Thank you for helping us reach our community for Christ through your sacrificial service to the whole church. Much love and thanks...Corky.
