NEW SERMON SERIES - "BEHOLD YOUR GOD"
In order to love well, we must know the God who loved us first, for the heart cannot love what the mind does not know. To know God more, we must know what he is like. Therefore, studying his attributes is one of the best ways to come to know him. As we walk through the book of Psalms, we will begin by seeing God as our refuge. The discussion questions for this week can be found HERE. Cards with the "Attributes of God" can be downloaded and printed HERE.
We have various prayer opportunities available to pray together as a congregation and we would like everyone to join us for a time of prayer.
Sunday mornings before the service - meet at 9:00 a.m. in the Adult Classroom, just past the library on the left.
Zoom Prayer Meetings - every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. and every 4th Sunday of the month at 5:00 p.m.. Click HERE to join the Zoom prayer call. Our next Zoom Prayer call will be Sunday, October 24th at 5:00 p.m.
