If you are ready to be refreshed and renewed in prayer, come and join us on Wednesdays at 12:30pm or 6:30pm in Fellowship Hall. Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring what is often called the greatest prayer of all, The Lord’s Prayer. We will discover how to resolve some of our challenges and questions about prayer by immersing ourselves in the character and nature of “Our Father.”
