Lenten Bible Study -

Wednesdays February 14 – March 20
6:00-7:30 PM at Roots of Faith

COME JOIN US as we learn and pray together the prayer Jesus taught us to pray. Most Christians know the Lord’s Prayer by heart. We pray it often, at different times and in different settings. We remember it as the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples. But do we really understand and appreciate the meaning and power of its words, what we ask of God each time we pray it? When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray, Jesus gave them this prayer. He likely taught it to his followers often, not just one time. He never intended the Lord’s Prayer to be a museum piece, framed and placed on a mantel or in a display case. It was Jesus teaching God’s people, through his disciples, how to pray. Books are $15.

Lenten Prayer Breakfast -

Saturday March 23rd 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM at Roots of Faith
