Sermon Series: Pray Like This
Through July 11
This Sunday, June 20 – Matthew 6:10

In this series, we will explore how Jesus teaches us to pray. We will dive deep into the Lord’s Prayer, which Jesus taught his disciples to pray. Over several weeks, we will look at each clause of the prayer and understand the deep principles embedded within. We will discover a blueprint for how we can model Jesus’ words in our own prayer life. Whether you are new to prayer, haven’t prayed in a while, or are a seasoned prayer warrior, this prayer is the perfect place to begin and to deepen your faith.
