Exploring Prayer: Purposeful Prayer

Sermon text: Matthew 6:5-13

Here & Now

Exploring Prayer 2023

Join Us in Memorizing Psalm 1 Together

This Sunday we will begin a 12 week sermon series on Prayer. As we begin exploring our prayer life, consider memorizing Psalm 1 with our church, meditating on it day and night. If you weren't able grab a Psalm 1 memory card this past Sunday, be sure to pick up one up at the Welcome Desk. We encourage you to place this card on your mirror, in your car, by your kitchen sink, or wherever it will be helpful to prompt you. Hiding these truths in our hearts is a valuable part of our faith that will yield fruit in us for the years to come.

Women's Retreat

March 10-11, 2023

Ladies, please join us for our first bi-annual Women’s Retreat called “Finding Freedom.” This year we will be going off campus to the Bonclarken Conference Center in Flat Rock, North Carolina.

Ruthie Delk will help us look at legitimate and illegitimate shame and the lies that our shame tries to tell us about our true identity that is in Christ. Throughout the weekend we will learn more about the freedom and comfort that Christ holds out for us, no matter our stories. There will be group teaching, personal reflection time, food, and fun activities planned. Recruit your friends to come with you, and plan to make some new ones as well!
